News flash from CBS news: Peace talks may be coming for the fighting in Korea. Audio in today’s show is excellent.
Meeting a sea captain, Marlowe learns his services won’t be needed after all. Getting paid for the job he didn’t do, Philip intends to enjoy some time doing nothing. A call for help alerts Marlowe that something fishy is going on that could be a matter of life or death. It’s head thumping time for Marlowe.
Shaking the fuzziness from his head, Marlowe meets yet another person named Higgins. Who is this odd family that includes a strong sea captain, frightened fawn of a girl, and motherly woman? Philip is still locked away, and trying to regain all his senses. Dale Higgins is back, but who is more confused? The girl, or Marlowe. Captain Higgins is back with explanations. Will Marlowe buy the story? Who was it who hit him hard enough to still have a swimming head?
Feeling well enough to leave the strange Higgins family, Philip is too intrigued to leave this chapter of his life behind him. Can he learn what he needs to know without rocking the boat? If he isn’t careful, somebody could end up dead. With the help of informants, a priest, and nuns, Philip may have this case in contrasts cracked. Now he has to bring it to justice.
