Private Investigator Tony Caruso lives out of his rolling office, an old Ford pickup truck, with his German-trained bomb-sniffing dog, Panzer, a Giant Schnauzer. Tony retired after twenty years in the Navy as an aviation ordnanceman, but this training might not be enough when he is hired by an old friend to look into a murder suicide in Bend, Oregon, a resort Boom Town in the high desert east of the Cascades. Was it a murder suicide as the local sheriff thinks? Or has this idyllic community been ripped apart by not only murder but scandalous sexual deviance, lust, jealousy and the quest for the almighty dollar? Follow Tony as he wades through a cast of characters as diverse as the Oregon landscape to solve this mystery.

Hey guys. Next part at nex result. ---- I screamed Percy's name. Peacekeppers tried to drag me back but I shot then in the heart. On the floor lies an unconsious man in a cloak. Will Ranger. Did he get here before me? I can tell he isn't dead but barely breathing. Percy's forehead is beaded in sweat and his messy brown hair is damp with sweat. The bloody slab of flesh is leaking a stream a blood. I jump in front of Percy as the man pulls the whip down hard on my shoulder. A moan escapes my throat. Blood dribbles down my shirt and I jump in front of him again. This time, Nico stands directly in front of him, and gets hit on his left cheek. He screams in agony as the whip comes down a second time. "Excuse me. I believe the limit of whippings is reached." A lady says. I pant and scream. I'm so out of breath that I can feel my entire body shake. I feel someone lift me up. Before we leave, I grip Percy and Nico's hands tightly as I pass out. ---NEXT PART AT NEXT RESULT!!-DTOTFA
