    In my best bad Dashiell Hammett:

    The images they showed me had the grittiness of sandbox in a windstorm.
    A generally good collection of photographic evidence. Many of the
    images lacked any trace of a suspect, a stipulation that was alluded to
    but not flatly required of the contract snappers. I had to get the
    photo perps together in a line-up. I had to break 'em down one by one
    - to see beyond the obvious - to shake out any remaining bits of
    information that may help solve the case.


    First up, Tom Hudson:

    A snap to let me know what kinda place I was dealing with. The usual
    turf - dark, brooding, urban... There was enough light to pull out
    some of the finer detail, and enough shadow to make me wonder what I'd
    find on further inspection. Some lights were still on; not everybody
    on this block gets an early start - I'll start with them. Good work,
    Hudson! Next time, get me a face that I can put a crime with.


    Your turn, Lauter:

    Not only are these people still awake - they're just back from wherever
    they've been. She's taller, too. Interesting, very interesting.
    Great work, Mark. Keep 'em coming!


    Kramer! Get in here!:

    Who's heater ventilation system? Who installed it?? Good capture of
    the effect, guess me and my shoe leather will figure out the cause.
    Good work, keep your head down!


    Here's what I found out:

    Relevance of this evidence available on request. Til then, I ain't
    talkin'.


    Have a seat, Kewfi:

    Thanks for the file photo. Take a look a Lauter's current pic. This
    guy ain't as intimidating as he used to be. Glad I didn't have to mix
    it up with him then. Excellent work!


    Hickey:

    Is this where he did his time? Get me another shot when he goes back
    in. This place has just the right mood for a guy like him. I like it!


    Your turn, Flint:

    Man, the guitar player never talks! Next time try the vocalist. For
    the record, the 50's was good times. Good work, Bob!


    P.F.:

    Nice Flyer! Our man takes a path less travelled. I wish you'da put
    him on the scene. No bloody glove this time? At least now I know
    where to look. Good work! Leave me a card.


    Al Denelsbeck:

    Looks like he hosts a hell of a shindig. Well done! The operation is
    puttin' together some kinda plan. Only time will tell where it'll
    lead...


    TO BE CONTINUED...MAYBE.
