“I know you’re used to giving lectures and questioning others, but right now I’m the one who’ll be making the inquiries,” the Inspector said, as he shook off his umbrella and removed his wet raincoat.
He was standing in the hallway of the Great Science Center. Just a short while ago, a rare, one-of-a-kind Himalayan bobcat had been stolen from its cage in the research laboratory.
The only three people who could have gained entry of the classified lab were standing before the Inspector.
“So where were each of you at exactly 6:30 this evening, when the bobcat-napping was determined to have taken place?”
“I was in my laboratory, studying molecule-sized microbes with my nuclear-powered microscope,” said Dr. Mays, head of the Biology Department.
‘I was at the telescope site, looking for traces of neutron stars,” said Professor Jason.
“I was in my office, preparing notes for my lecture tomorrow on chemotherapy,” said Dr. Barnes.
“You may say you were looking at the stars,” the Inspector said, turning to Professor Jason. “But I think a cat got in your sight.”
Why is Professor Jason suspected of the cat-napping?
It had been rainy all day, making star-gazing impossible, even with the powerful telescope Jason was using. He was the thief.
