“Lanning,” said Chan, “we’re trying our best to nail Gi Yu for your father’s murder.”

Chan said, “Your dad was watching over you.”

Kono and Chin had to take off.  After they’d gone, I placed a large envelope on the table in front of Chan.

“You know, sometimes I wish I had time to write up some of my cases.  I’d have to fictionalize them pretty heavily.  People might be interested.”

Chan laughed, blushed even.
