No Orchestra for Miss Blandish

[Extracted from the files of Mark Time P.I.]

Robert McGinnis

Complicated. Things always get more complicated as the job develops.
It starts as a simple case: What is Miss Blandish’s prospective husband doing during those nights on ‘special assignment’ at the Dartminster Hotel?
The more you know the more you need to find out.
It is possible that Miss Blandish’s fiancĂ© is a special agent on assignment at the Dartminster Hotel.
Is it possible that Miss Blandish is as stupid as she is beautiful.
Mind you, she did choose to hire me.

“Mark Time ~ All your questions answered”

Or so proclaims the traffolite label on my door.


The title is a perversion of James Hadley Chase's 'No Orchids for Miss Blandish".
The content is just a perversion.

Well that doesn't look like a Martini he's holding. Always be weary of the bland ones, they all have secrets and lies.
