Summary

Leonora Hodge had a meeting with her business partner Benny Colt. As she arrived half an hour early, she decided to have a coffee at a store in the same building. When she noticed the time, she quickly left the coffee shop and went up to see her partner. Coming up on the third floor, she found the right door, and knocked. As there wasn't any answer she opened the door and walked in. There she saw Benny lying on his office desk. As she went up closer, she saw blood all over the table. With her cell phone she called the police, and got hold of detective Max Cloud. My partner Benny Colt got himself killed, what can I do? Don't tough anything, Smart and I will be over right away. It didn't take more than five minutes and the two detectives arrived with the homicide squad. Max Cloud asked if she had touched anything? No, she answered, only the handle outside when I entered. The medical examiner, doctor Elizabeth Blade looked at the stiff, ans said that it had been dead for less than half an hour. At that time I was here, said Leonora. As I was early I went in to the coffee shop for a cup of coffee. You was lucky said the coroner, had you come up here half an hour ago, you would have been killed as well. This was a professional killing. First they cut the carotid artery, then the killer put his gun to the neck, and gave this person his coup d' grace. James, the butler came and picked up Mrs. Hodge, and drove her home. Home at the mansion one person rang the doorbell and tried to get in to the house. James the butler grabbed his arm and pushed him down to the floor. When the detective Cloud came, he took the killer Alfred Paulsen to the jail. However, when he went outside with Alfred another man tried to shot him. but Max was quicker, and Drew Paulsen died. It took most of the day, before all the Paulsen's had been either killed or taken prisoner. Even their old mother, Mrs. Paulsen did her best to kill Leonora. In the end she said my new partner will be James, our butler. without him, I would have been dead by now.
