Hansback walked along the street slowly. It was a peaceful summer day. The birds were chirping, and bee's were buzzing, in the quite London country side. Hansback sighed. It had been a long couple of weeks. Investigating a mysterious robbery, Hanscock, had little rest. He was grateful for the little peace he could have now.
That is why I never wanted my name known as a famous detective, he thought to himself. Why, this moment of peace probably won't even exist if I were well known.
With that thought he turned down a small dirt lane, which lead to his cottage. He stopped a few feet down the lane, turned back, and walked over to his mailbox. There was one letter inside. It was a free pass to a train ride around England.
Hmm. The detective part in Hansback was instantly suspicious. Who sent him this he wondered. Could someone know who he is? He dismissed that thought with a shake of his head. No one knew who he is, no one.
As he studied the note some more, he realized this could be more peace for him. Relaxing on a train, seeing London again, and the rest of England, why this was a perfect idea.
He nodded to himself, as he walked down his driveway. This was a grand idea. Peace, relaxing, and enjoying England. Little did he know what was to happen...
