HAVE YOU SEEN THIS OLYMPIAN? AZI TOLL, NATIONAL GOLD BI-ATHLETE . MISSING FOR FIVE DAYS
IF YOU HAVE SEEN THIS YOUNG LADY PLEASE CONTACT CARVER MANX AT 555-111-0188 ANY TIME.
Sometimes you have to wonder what kind of world we live in when crap like this happens, especially when street wars and take-overs happen between bad guys, and the law seems at odds with itself over what to do about it.
I sat at my desk two-finger typing an article on gun control for another column I publish once a month, and as the words appeared on the screen I thought about how useless it was. Everyone reads my stuff but the question remains does anyone ever actually absorb what I write?
I put the column aside and dove into the kidnapping of Azi Toll. My heart sank almost immediately when I considered her chances of survival. They were better with Carver Manx on the case but even he only pulls off miracles now and then. Dealing with gangsters is never a good bet. But worse than that, if anything tragic happened to Azi Boss, Madigan would go crazy and the city would be in for a bad guy blood bath.
I picked up the phone and dialed the number for Madigan’s Westside Nightclub, a thriving disco dance and meet-up place, not to mention behind the wall poker tables. I needed a little background on the girl that reached beyond her Olympian status, like who she hung out with. I was sure Manx would be looking for the same info and would pass it on to me but I like to get my own copy. Somehow it always seems more legit.
The phone rang twice and a dull grumpy voice came on. “Hey. Whata ya want?”
