She was incessantly on his trail for the past one month. By now, she was no stranger to his mundane activities. There was nothing unusual about his ventures and she almost lost hope of succeeding in digging out any new facts. “Did he smell anything fishy?” She wondered. But tonight he did something unprecedented and made that long awaited mistake she wished for. She dialed all numbers the moment she saw him walking towards his backyard with digging tools. His arrest was master stroke in gaining ladders.

P. S – Vesper or Vesper Martini is a cocktail that was originally made of gin, vodka, and Kina Lillet. The drink was invented and named by Ian Fleming in the 1953 James Bond novel Casino Royale. In actuality, the book version of the Vesper was created by Fleming’s friend Ivar Bryce. In Bryce’s copy of Casino Royale Fleming inscribed “For Ivar, who mixed the first Vesper and said the good word.”
