Built in 1880, near the beginning of the Gilded Age, its mahogany walls were still in very good condition. The gilding on the marble columns was just starting to peel and the imported Oriental rugs did show some wear but all in all a very nice place to stay.

Many important people have stayed there due to the excellent food, courteous service, and a certain amount of discretion afforded by the management. Many important people still do, however due to the unwillingness of the management to cooperate with the press, this cannot be confirmed.

The hotel's low profile helps keep it a bit obscure which is what attracts the rich, powerful, and those who want to hide in style.

Pearl Diver was on her way to visit a friend when she spotted a beautiful woman exit the Broadway Plaza Hotel. Pearl assumed she was an important person since it was obvious by the luggage that she had just checked out.

"Hmm, such a nice young lady." Pearl thought to herself and knowing the history of the hotel wondered if she was someone important. Pearl thought about this while watching the woman walk away. She then saw the woman throw some trash onto the street. Pearl scowled to herself, "Well, I guess she's too important to properly dispose of her garbage!"

He stood up to signal over Amanda.

He took the file she offered, "Good work. You obviously had a good teacher" he says with a knowing smirk.

"Hmmm not quite what I expected, I will have to give this some thought."

He guided her to the hotel bar.

"A drink on me is the least I can do for your efforts. " He smiled, "And being seen with a lovely lady like your self is all the reward I need."

Moving to the bar, calling over the bartender.

Amanda ordered a drink, and proceeded to explain what was in the folder.

"It's not what I expected either, but it seems that the detectives name was Non, and she was a member of the Hitchikers. Detective Agency that is." Amanda added. Their drinks came. Amanda continued. "Non was married and had 2 kids. Besides that, I only know alot of strange personal things, like she likes jello shots and is a regular at the local bar." Amanda shook her head. "Motive is where I'm stumped. From what I've read Non didn't seem to have any enemies. I figured it could be a former client."

Barry was feeling better every day. He was able to sit up comfortably and his walking was coming along. In the middle of reading the paper, his sister Betty came in.

"Hi, Barry. How are you today?"

"I'm feeling much better."

"Well, don't push it, the kids are already asking when you can come to dinner." This made Barry smile. He loved his sister but her kids can be a handful when their mother isn't around. "Look, I brought you a present." Betty held out a brown paper bag.

Barry took it and looked inside. "Wow! Nathan's Famous Franks! You went all the way to Brooklyn for these?"

"Of course, you're my brother and I love you and I want you to get better soon and I know how much you like them."

Barry and Betty started eating and chatting about the family and what's new. When Barry asked about Betty's husband "that good-for-nothing", Betty just tsked him told him she was very happy. She didn't want to mention that he was out yet another job again because that would just irritate Barry. Besides, it looked like he had a line on something and could very well be employed as of today.

Barry and Betty started reminiscing about when they were younger and started laughing at all the crazy antics they used to pull. Laughing only hurt Barry a little so he enjoyed a few. They seemed to make him feel better anyway.

After about an hour and a half, Betty left Barry to take a nap but promised to return soon.

Smiles over his wine at Amanda. Clients are always the ones that people suspect, but they rarely actually committ the crimes. Non had a history with people, he knew that.

There were a few people here in town that were nice on the outside to people, but laughed behind your back where you could not see them. He much prefered the people who were open about thier dislikes than the ones who hung out in their little clubs to chatter away like little high school girls.

"Amanda, I think that I will take this and do some more digging on Non's last cases to see if I can find anyone that rings a bell. Thank you very much for all the help with this. I am going to go back to Shanghai and see if I can track down Jake from that end. I am sure the two of us will bump into each other at the race track again."

"I owe you one."

He ordered a second round to share before he had to slip off to the docks and catch a tramp frieghter home.

Jojo enters the Hotel, walking in briskly.His eyes meet the glint in that of the Concierge's, who is quick to speak.

"Hello, kind sir."

Jojo looks around, not sure why he's at the hotel. He had received a small note with a package. It had instructed him to make his way to the Broadway Plaza Hotel.

"I'm not exactly sure why I'm here. I'm supposed be meeting someone."

He said the last as if it were a question.The Concierge turned toward about, pointing in a general direction.

"Ah, he is right in there."

Jojo made his way to the ballroom, unsure why he was here on this cold, dark night as he muttered,

A very beautiful, long legged blonde entered the hotel and was greeted with a lot of turned heads. It was something she always enjoyed. She walked, or maybe it can be called slinked, up to the concierge.

He was taken by her beauty right away. "May I help you, miss?" His smile was a little too broad to not be considered lecherous.

"Yes, I am here to visit Barry Grant. What room is he in, please?"

"Well, he is in a secure area of the hotel. You need to be cleared by security."

The blonde batted her eyes and played with her hair a bit. "Really? I didn't know they required that for family." She was trying anything in order to get up to see Barry knowing if she was announced, there was a good chance she'd be refused.

The concierge, mesmerized by the woman's stunning looks, winked at her and said, "Follow me, miss." and he led her to a rear elevator.

The concierge escorted the beautiful blonde to Barry's room. The guard on duty was in the middle of a huge yawn when they exited the elevator but became surprisingly alert when he saw the blonde coming his way.

The concierge spoke first. "Max, I have a visitor for Mr. Grant. She's his relative."

The guard did not realize the concierge was there until he started speaking. "Oh?" His eyes never left the blonde. "You're related to Mr. Grant?" Max was glad for this because that meant Barry wasn't dating this woman and he might have a chance. "He gave us a list of relatives who he expected to see while he was staying here. What's your name?"

The blonde batted her eyes again and looked at him coquettishly, "Oh, I'm sure I'm not on his list. You see, he thought I was still in Shanghai so he wouldn't have known to add me to the list. I'm his first cousin." Max smiled at this. Clearly he had a chance.

"Oh, I see. Well, I'm sure he would want to see you. His visitors always leaves him feeling better than before and I'm sure it will be a nice surprise for him since he thinks you're in Shanghai." Max offered his elbow which was taken. The concierge watched her enter the suite and didn't leave until a few seconds after the door was closed.

Leo jumped up. "Max! What are you doing in here? You're supposed to be on guard outside and..." Leo stopped talking the minute he saw what Max had on his arm.

Max said, "This is Mr. Grant's first cousin and she wants to visit him." Leo, slack-jawed, said, "OK. I'll take it from here." and offered his elbow which was subsequently taken.

Leo escorted her into Barry's room. They found him sleeping but she managed to convince him to let her stay in the room until he woke up. He agreed, of course, and pulled up a chair for her. "If you need anything, I will be right outside."

The blonde said her thanks and settled into the chair to wait for him to wake up. It was when Leo closed the door behind him that she began to smile.

Andrea left her room and took the elevator to Barry's. She had been busy and had not had a chance to check up on him.
She noticed the guards at the door and smiled a greeting.

"Oh, good afternoon, Miss X" - Leo said - "Come to see Mr Grant, have you? Someone is already in there though. You might not get a ch..." His voice trailed when he met her hard, cold stare.

"Someone? Who?" - Andrea asked

"Some looker. Said she was his cousin" - Max answered

Not wishing to discuss this further with those two guards who she now officially considered complete idiots, she readied her fangs and entered the room. At the sight of THAT woman, she almost lost all control. It was all she could do not to gauge her eyes out.

"Becky! What the HELL are you doing here??? I know for a FACT your name is not in the list!" - Andrea screamed. She could not belive this.

Becky smiled, and said:

"I just came by to see Barry. I am pretty sure he would want to see me" - she batted her pretty eyes and made a moue which cut NO ice with Andrea. By now, the guards had entered the room alerted by Andrea's voice.

"Is there a probl.." - Max could not finish his sentence because Andrea was at him with her Fangs at his throat.

"Are you really THIS stupid? How, HOW could you possibly let her in when she was NOT in the list? WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU???" - she said
