Back From The Dead

FBI Deputy Special Agent in Charge, Sharon Ferrell-Hopkins smiled as Detective Edwin "Duke" Baylor and I walked into the squad room...

"Everything good?" she asked...

I smiled...I couldn't be better...

Duke smiled..

"He's a regular James Bond ,Sharon....He's wired for sound...We'll be able to hear everything clearly and the micro -camera device in his watch will allow us to see everything too.." he said..



"These are nice...I'll definitely have to get me one of these.."I said.

 "That's why I joined the FBI Kevin....For the toys."laughed Sharon...

Just then Lt. Sissy Van Buren and Detective Angie Belton-Barlow walked in...They had food..

Sissy had a Hoagie for both Sharon and Me and a Cheese Steak and fries for Duke and Angie..

"Our boy all wired up and ready to go?" asked Sissy...

"He ready.."said Duke..

Detective Angie Belton and I had been lovers ,almost a lifetime ago...We were both married to other people now...She looked me up and down and then whispered in my ear...

"That goatee is a nice touch..It's hella sexy...Umph,Umph,Umph..I'll bet Sepia can't keep her hands off of you.."she said and giggled..



I smiled...
"Okay Kevin...We are all set...I have three very good plain clothes men following you to a certain point..and Duke, Angie and I won't be far..." she said... "I went to the hospital to see your client, Mr. Champion...Looks like he'll recover from his wounds..I've got two uniforms and a plain clothes guy on his door."said Sissy..

"Thanks Sissy." I said..

Sissy hugged me with that warm curvaceous body of hers...

"Be Easy, you hear?  These are dangerous people..."she said..

"Siss....I'M DANGEROUS!" I said.

II-
So once again I went to the condo owned by Curly Nelson....I rang the door bell and his attractive and shapely widow, Addie Nelson answered the door..

She was in no mood to see me...

"YOU? What do you want? I told you, my husband is dead!" she said.

She went to close the door, but I put my foot in the door and forced my way in...

"I insist you entertain me.."I said.

"Are you crazy??....Do you know the trouble you're in?" she said...

"Trouble...Trouble? With who? Your dead husband or Tommy Gun and Benny, his two murderous hoods??"I asked.

"Ouu, you just don't know..."she said.

I looked around...

"Nice place you got here....The two of you must be very happy..."I said.

"Ouuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu you just don't know.."she said..

"Here's what I do know...Your husband is not dead and if he is..he certainly isn't that poor schmuck up at the morgue...I got a contact in the morgue...They positively identified that body as one Rodney Anderson...a drunk ,living in a rooming house...Poor guy bought a $90,000 winning lotto ticket the day he went missing..never got to use it...Now I know Tommy Gun and Benny wired that car and probably killed him and put his body in that car and blew it up..Just like I know they shot my client and scared the man to the point that he's asked me to back off the case.."I said.

"He's a smart man, you should do what he asks..."she said.

"Ahhh and here lies the problem...He didn't pay me...He 's out of the 100G bond that your husband put up..and I'm out of the amount of cash I was supposed to get..."I said.

"There aint no price on livin..."she smirked..

"If I go to the cops with my little story..they might listen...they might get a warrant and flush all of you rats out...I'm bettin your husband wouldn't want that would he? Not only that...but now he'd be facing a murder rap to boot...See where I'm going with this?" I asked.

"I hate Private Dicks..."she muttered..."What do you want?" she asked..

"One hundred large baby...by midnight tonight at the Bail Bondsman's office....He's in the hospital...I have a key...Tell him or a representative to bring the cash....And if they don't...I go to the cops with what I know..and uh well ,you can imagine what happens after that."I said and began to walk out.

"Ouuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu..."she moaned..

"Relax...Your old man can afford it...I'll be seeing you..."I said as I walked out...

"Nice place you guys got.."I added..


I walked out into the Philadelphia night....

I was no fool...I knew that you didn't blackmail a guy like Curly Nelson...I expected a most revealing visit soon...

III-
I sat in the Bail Bondsman office of Eddie Champion...I had straightened up and emptied the trash and mopped the floor and sprayed Air Freshener...If I had to be here ,I had to make this office bearable...

A little before midnight...I saw a  a 1970 Cutlass, Maroon ,pull up and two men get out...They looked around and then they opened the door...

"Tommy ?? Benny?? That you?? "I asked..."The light switch is over there."I said.

"I'm flicking the lights on...but it's lights out for you.."said Tommy as he and Benny aimed their pistols at me..

I pulled out my 44. Magnum...
"I don't think so fellas....This is a pretty big gun I got here."I said smiling..."Now drop that sack and open it.."I said.

"It's two of us..You a bettin man Kevin?  I'll bet our two .45's trump your big gun tonight.."said Tommy.

"I'll bet that I put a round between your eyes before either one of you clowns gets a shot off...You feelin lucky Tommy?" I asked.

He smiled..

"Extremely lucky." he said.

"OPEN THAT SACK!" I demanded...

Tommy didn't move...But Benny opened it and spilled some of the cash out!

Benny opened the sack...It appeared to have 100G's in it...

I smiled..

"So he is alive....and I was right...You two killed that poor guy and placed him in that car which you blew up, thus faking your bosses death and you numb skulls tried to kill my client the other day." I said.

Tommy smiled.

"Yeah, you're right...We iced him..We figured nobody would miss him....Had to be you huh Kev?You know of course...there is no way we are going to let you walk out of here alive..right? You know too much.."he said..

Benny cocked his gun and aimed it at me...

"Know it alls get a bullet." he said.

Just then...He heard the click of another gun...It was aimed at the back of his head....

"I don't think so." said Detective Angie Belton...


Detective Edwin "Duke " Baylor  smiled..

"You guys really are as dumb as you look...drop the gun Tommy...Don't make me have to ask you again."he said...

They knew not to trifle with Duke ,He had a shotgun leveled at both....

They both dropped  their guns and put their hands up..

Three plain clothes cops who had been outside came in and cuffed them and read them their rights..

Sissy just shook her head...She looked at me and smiled..

"Thank you so much." she said..


"It's what I do Siss.." I said.

III-

 At that very moment..at Curly Nelson's condo...the door was ringing...

Addie Nelson answered the door...



"Ahhhh who is it now?" she muttered...

 "Hello....I'm Detective Carlotta Rodriguez-Wallace and you...You're under arrest." said Carlotta,smiling sweetly...
"What?...You're off your nut." said Addie..

"I'm afraid she's not.."said Detective Sirena Pile.... A female uniformed officer  with them,handcuffed Addie ,while they read her her rights...

Her husband, Detective Tyriq Pile and Detectives Jimmy Barlow and Tony Hopkins barged in with four uniformed officers...

"Alright Curly,come on out...the jig is up..We know you're here.."said Tyriq...

"Excuse you? You got a warrant?" demanded Addie..


"Sure do."said Hop as he showed the warrant to her...

Jimmy and the four uniformed policemen pulled Curly Nelson out of the backroom...He was in his bathrobe and boxers....

"Wellll look who we have here Rico,...back from the dead....The Late great Curly Nelson.."laughed Jimmy..

Curly Nelson stomped his foot in disgust...

"I'll BE DAMNED...I'LL BE DAMNED!" he shouted to the top of his lungs....

Just then..FBI Deputy Special Agent in Charge, Sharon Ferrell-Hopkins and five FBI agents walked up on them...

She looked at him and smiled...

"Got any pants?" she said.

He smiled at her...

"What do I need any pants for baby?" he laughed ,winking at Sharon.

"Get some pants." said Sharon, no longer smiling...

"Sorry guys...I have a federal court order to take Mr. Nelson into custody...Federal custody..."she said..

"Mrs. Nelson too?" asked Carlotta..

"No...Just him...I'll explain to you guys later."said Sharon...

"No need Sharon..I think I already know."said Tyriq..

Sissy and I drove up just as they all were leaving....

 "Well Kevin, thanks to you...We've closed a murder case and we have a wanted fugitive in custody..I can't thank you enough..."said Sissy...
 "My client lives...He gets his bond money and I get my fee....I'd say.. All in all, it has been a very successful night..." I said...

Sissy smiled..

"Yes Indeed...Can I drop you off anywhere?" she asked...

"My car is in the parking lot of that Bail Bonds joint...I think I can take it from there Siss." I said smiling.

EPILOUGE-


Addie Nelson, Tommy"Tommy Gun" Noonan and Benjamin Carter were convicted of the first degree murder of Rodney Anderson  aka Tim Husky and the attempted murder of Eddie Champion....All three were sentenced to 99 years.. In my opinion they deserved the death penalty..

Curly Nelson was convicted in federal court of drug charges totaling up to 25 years and in State court of Conspiracy to commit murder and attempted murder ,totaling up to 75 years...

He is being held in Federal Custody at the present time in a place unknown..

Eddie Champion paid me handsomely...the rest  of the money that he owed me.

My wife Sepia and I met him at his office for lunch...days after he was released from the hospital..




Eddie smelled the fresh air in his office and smiled..

"You cleaned up in here huh?"he mused...

"Yeah,just a little bit." I said.

"I was uh gonna get around to it eventually.."he said..."My hunch was right...That old bastard was alive and plannin not to pay me my dough..Well Kev...you got to the bottom of it..Like I knew you would...Now he's really gone...Those dealers of his have left the corners...No product and no one to pay them...And that Pawn Shop of his and that Barber Shop are both closed..You should get a public service medal Kev..." said Eddie Champion..

"Imagine that!" I said...

"Uh Kev...I heard you found a lottery ticket for 90 large on that poor schmuck that they killed huh? What are you gonna do..cash it?" he said smiling slyly..

"I gave it to the man and woman who lived with him....Maybe it'll help them get a new place..a better place..."I said..

"Are you really that naive Kevin? They gonna drink and smoke that money up...You'd of been better off keeping that dough yourself."he said..

"Perhaps...but I like to believe in the goodness in people..."I said.

Sepia hugged me and kissed me softly...

"That's what I love about him...That's why I married him." she said..

Eddie smiled sheepishly....

"Welll...I guess I can't argue with that!" he said and we all busted out laughing...
