Getting ready for bed at the Great Northern:
"Diane, 4:37 AM. After a long, investigative night, returning to
my room at the Great Northern. We have one suspect in custody, and
Leo Johnson, the man I believe is responsible for Laura's death,
won't be able to escape the dragnet we've thrown up for him much
"As you can hear from the ambient sound around me, and I notice
with some relief, that the Icelandic group, staying on my floor,
have either checked or passed out. I may not need the ear pillow
ear plugs, which I did receive today, Diane. Although, I suspect,
I may put them to use as a purely precautionary measure."
"I ordered some hot milk from room service. Here's hoping it does
the job and I'll be able to catch a few hours of quality sack time.
Twenty Four hour room service must be one of the premier achievements
of modern civilization."
