The Secret Of The Crooked Arrow

755 words - 4 pages

In the town of St. Louis, Missouri, there was a detective called John William Franklin who worked for the police force. He was an intelligent and generous man of the age of 29. Whenever there was a client with a problem, he would always try to help them in any way possible. On February 29, 2000, the police force received a letter from the local museum owner, stating that their prized possession, a crooked arrow from 550 B.C., was stolen.

Franklin inferred that the thief must have broken the transformer. He drove to the local Department of Water and Power. Just as he thought, they told him they fixed the broken transformer this morning.
Now that he knew how the thief made the robbery and his escape, Franklin needed to find out who the thief was. He drove back to the station as fast as he could, because he believed in the saying, “Time is of the Essence.” Then, he took out the fingerprints, and put them under the scanner one by one. There were seven total fingerprints. Franklin inferred that...
