Audio is good, maybe a little muffled, but still good.
Nero and Archie bicker over looking at the comics page. Sent out on messenger duty, Archie visits a room full of temperamental writers. The frustrations with the eccentrics are alleviated for Archie when a dame, and executive secretary fills him in on the meeting. A theft of a gun, and a list of people who had access to the desk where it was stored are revealed. Will it be so easy to figure out who the surprised burger was? Archie is detained, since the artists can’t be rushed, and their quirks be disturbed. Battling radios at full volume, drafty windows, breakfast after noon, and more.
As he passes time, the quirks won’t stop. Hours pass, but the creative juices of art seem to be shutting his questions off. Archie has enough of being jerked around, and though the original gun has shown up, his is missing. It’s enough to make him swear… just a little bit. What do you think? Isn’t it about time a body makes the scene?
Inspector Kramer is called, but the cop thinks Archie is telling lies when he explains what happened. Suddenly, the artists tell conflicting stories as to why they hired Nero, and what Archie was supposed to be doing.
The other artists and writers seem to have stories to put Archie on the hot seat. Why are they lying, and setting Archie up? What part does the monkey have in the weird crime? Back in the office, Archie tells Nero all the details. The scandal soon spreads to threaten to take down Nero’s detective business as well. Dirt is dug up on the artists and writers. Confrontations made. You know how this ends… Nero cuts through the twisted mess of a mystery.
Get ready for the big reveal, and the truth behind the vendetta against the rotund detective.
