Web of Deceit

“That conniving son of a bitch,” Detective Ron Hayden said. “But with this warrant and what we found, I think we’ve got this SOB securely ensconced by his own web of deceit.”

“Don’t go around tooting your horn quite yet, Ron,” his partner, Detective Fred Morrisey warned. “I think we’ve caught the right scent, but we need to make sure we have an airtight case against this bastard. He’s managed to escape our grip several times already and I don’t want to lose this opportunity to put this guy away for good. So let’s not pop that bottle of fizzy champagne quite yet, okay!”

“I think you’re being overly cautious, Fred,” Hayden said, “But you’re the boss.”

“Maybe I am, but I can’t let this scoundrel slip through my fingers yet again,” Morrisey said.

      Yes Detectives Fred Morrisey and Ron Hayden are recurring characters in my posts. You’ve got a good memory.

    Great read Fandango. Would love to know if they ultimately get their man or botch it up.

      With these detectives on the case, it’s hard to tell.
