Chapter 5: The Diagnosis — a Clear Case of Transparency

As I walked back to my office I thought about an angle that can never be ignored. In every case I have to consider the possibility that a client is not what they pretend to be. Although I had a good instinct for such things and felt rather confident about Miss Taylor’s sincerity I had to consider all possibilities. In some cases I’d even be set up. Sometimes people figure a private investigator makes a great alibi or can mislead the police like a herring throwing bloodhounds off a scent. Continue reading

Chapter 4: The Scene of the Incident

She then turned to face me and I almost startled. The white veil she was presently wearing was not nearly as thick as the black one I had first seen her in. And with the light coming through the window I clearly saw an empty hat on that woman. I thought to comment then thought better.

Chapter 3: An Unlikely Colleague

As I leafed through some other pages an advertisement caught my eye. There was nothing new about it, that sort of ad was rather common. It was for ladies’ undergarments. The brassiere, briefs, and stockings were full, as if worn, but the attire was disconnected, with no apparent woman within. Continue reading

Chapter 1: A Very Unique Case

Out of Mind, Out of Sight (by Bob Bentley)

Lester Zelensky strode confidently onto the beach. It was a warm day and several women were playing volleyball. But that’s not what Les saw. He saw one-piece bathing suits, bikinis, and a few shorts with tank-tops playing volleyball. To Les’ view they were all invisible. He smiled at the thought. Continue reading

Austin Powers: The Spy Who Saw Through Me (by Bob Bentley)

Austin spotted something unusual in the crowd that was starting to part. All eyes were drawn to a truly unique sight. There in the center was a dancing figure. It had white vinyl thigh boots, but no legs. It had long pink gloves but no arms. It had a black leather cap and reflecto shades but no head. It had a psychedelic minidress but no body.

Late Bloomer (by Bob Bentley)

Late Bloomer. Suzie Jones hated the expression. She heard it often enough from her parents and even aunts and uncles began to say it. She knew they meant well. They seemed to think that the expression would console her somehow. … Continue reading
