Excerpt: ?Slug? O?donnel leaned back in his chair, took a toothpick out of his mouth and pointed it. ?Danny,? he said, ?I promised you that time the Hindu kept you locked in his closet that I?d give you a break on another case sometime. Now that was a rash statement, made in a moment of ? of ?? ?Of gratitude,? Mike Ryan, his redfaced detective partner, came in dryly. ?Yes,? Slug O?donnel went on ? ?of gratitude. You must know, Danny, that tipping off kids like you on big crimes, no matter how smart the kids are or how lucky they are in turning up a valuable clue now and then, is, to say the least, highly irregular. If the chief found out, your friend, Mike Ryan, and I might get bounced out of the homicide squad like a couple of duck eggs out of a hen?s nest!? The twelve?year?old shoe?shine boy?s eyes became a trifle troubled. He shifted the shine kit to his other shoulder, turned his checkered cap around and around in his hands. He had red hair, freckles, and frank blue eyes; and he had been featured in several cases with Slug O?donnel and Mike Ryan, where he had been able to spot clues that aided them in making important arrests. ?What are you driving at, Slug?? he asked. Mike .Ryan lighted a short stogy and puffed on it. ?Kid, what he?s really driving at is that he wants you to do us a favor, and count that as the break he promised you.? ?That?s not true, Mike!? Slug roared.
