Synopsis:  She was young, very beautiful, and very drunk.  I found her sitting on my doorstep.  "They're going to kill me," she said.
 It was two o'clock in the morning, and I was in no mood for games.  "Look, honey, it's late and this happens to be my appartment, not my office.  Even a private detective needs some privacy.  Tomorrow, huh?"
 And then I looked at her eyes.  Under the blueness and alcohol was fear, real fear. "Come on in," I said. "I'll make some coffee and we'll talk it over."
 It was a good thing we did.  Because that was the last time anybody would talk--or do anything else--with the most exciting woman I'd ever known.
