Did You Know?


[first lines]
Lt. Rod Blake: Oh, hello. I'm Rod Blake, chief investigator for the Nevada state troopers. If somebody tells you he's a whizzo at kissing a dog, you'll know, of course, that he's referring to his ability to pick your pockets while he's standing face to face with you. If, later, a cannon took a flop on a dead banger, you'd know he'd been caught red-handed at his trade and sent to prison. I had to brush up on my underworld lingo not long ago in order to close a case called, "The Choker".
