A LITTLE KNOWLEDGE …

00:0000:00

RAVELSTON DYKES AND NICK THE CABBY ARE SITTING IN THE DINING ROOM OF A HOTEL WHEN RAVELSTON STARTS REMINISCING ON HOW THEY FIRST MET.

 

RAVELSTON HAS BEEN EARNING FREE BOARD AND LODGINGS BY SPENDING HIS DAYS POSING AS THE PHILIP MARLOWE EXHIBIT IN THE COMELY BANK WAXWORKS DUE TO THEIR PREVIOUS EXHIBITS MELTING IN THE HEATWAVE OF 2006.  AS HE DONNED THE OUTFIT WHILST THE WAX WAS STILL WET, IT HAS NOW STUCK FIRMLY TO HIS PERSON.

 

HE IS LEFT A SIZEABLE SUM OF MONEY BY A DISTANT RELATIVE BUT THE LEGACY COMES AT A COST.  THE MONEY WILL BE HELD IN TRUST AND RELEASED IN THE AMOUNT OF £50K EACH TIME HE SOLVES A CRIME.  THIS WILL ENSURE THAT GOOD WILL COME FROM THE BEQUEST AND THAT RAVLESTON WILL BE GAINFULLY EMPLOYED AT LAST.

 

HE IS APPROACHED BY HIS FIRST CLIENT, NICK, WHO HAS HEARD ON THE GRAPEVINE THAT RAVELSTON DOES NOT CHARGE FOR HIS SERVICES.  IN RETURN, NICK OFFERS TO ACT AS RAVELSTON’S DRIVER WHENEVER THE NEED ARISES.

 

IF YOU'VE AN HOUR OR SO TO KILL, WHY NOT SPEND IT IN THE COMPANY OF RAVELSTON AND NICK AS YOU FOLLOW THEM THROUGH THE STREETS OF OLD TOWN EDINBURGH, SLEUTHING AS THEY GO.
