A long shadow, thrown across the car park late at night. Who is this silent witness of Mike's fight with Gorman Bulberg, the hardy debt collector of Dulos Street ? And how does he fit in with the expert driver of the green Mercedes that tails Mike home ?

This time it looks as though trouble is coming to meet 'Dance and Co Detectives' a good deal more than halfway - but since when have Jim dance and his friend Birdie, to say nothing of old Granpa Garson, asked for anything better than just that ?
