Hawks in the Night: Part 1
Tracer Studds. That's my name. I'm a detective in the Village. Lived here for the past 23 years. I've seen the underbelly of this city in every way. Just last week in fact I saw a criminal. You can bet that he didn't get away without a chase.
Things have been a bit slow lately, to be sure. Must be another, new detective in town. But my reputation'd give me the upper hand, I like to think. Been working here 23 years you know.
If there's one thing I've learned in this detective business, it's never let a lead go unfollowed. I saw somethin' in the newspaper this morning that made my ears perk up, like a cat's does, you know. Very interesting news indeed. I'd find what I needed at Phillies' Diner, if the paper was any indication.
