Crime, Cash and 8 mm (#205 Video)

Charlie had been disgusted at the video in his inbox.

Poor quality and probably taken from old 8 mm Charlie thought it was a sick joke until the camera paned down to the face of a thin boy on a leash with stringy black hair. Then Charlie got angry.

A quick loan against the house and a promise of a second book to his publisher was enough cash to buy the film, the stills and the digital copy. Charlie lit a fire that burned hot in the June weather as soon as he got home. The next morning he picked up the phone and called in some favors.

Within a week he had most of the money back even if he still owed his publisher a book.

When the agents, none from the LA office, asked how he got mixed up in a blackmail ring he simply stated it was a matter of family. Charlie knew everyone would assume it had something to do with Don, legendary womanizer and occasional loose cannon.

A week later Ian pulled himself and a runaway murdering cult leader off a mountain then came home.

Charlie greeted him with a home cooked meal and a kiss.
