For Nancy
Thank you for your timeless love.
You are my past, my present, and my future.

—J.J.L.

ACKNOWLEDGMENTS

I
would like to acknowledge Molly Kempf Hodgin, my longtime editor and partner in crime. Thanks for your vigilance, skill, and unending support. Without your help, Griffin's story surely would have remained untold.

The only reason for time is so that everything doesn't happen at once.

SEPARATING THE FACTS

I
t is of particular importance that we stick to the facts when talking about the history of Griffin Sharpe. Although scholars have attributed many fantastic deeds to the World's Most Secret Detective, we must try, if possible, to remain objective and sort out what is fact from fiction.
