Spore lay unconscious on the floor having stumbled in seconds earlier, clutching a slip of paper. I tried to determine whether he was still breathing. I may not like my clients but I don't want them dead. It's bad for business.
LaFlamme wrenched the piece of paper from his fingers and read it aloud.
"Jackals dine," she said mysteriously. We both stared at each other blankly across Spore's gangly frame.
"Jackals dine? What the hell does that mean?" I asked.
"I might have missed all the other anagrams in this story, but I'm not about to miss this one," LaFlamme replied confidently.
I had no idea what she meant, but at least the story was back on track.
