9 Million dollars is missing - that's enough money to smoke out all the two-bit criminals in Trenton.
Steph is working with Ranger babysitting an aging pop star. She is also working with Morellis watching his distant cousin's kid, a gamer named Zook. They are watching Zook until his mom can make bail...until she goes missing.
Between babysitting jobs, and keeping people out of Morelli's yard looking for the 9 mil, Stephanie hears a rumor, which might be more than a rumor, about Morelli, and her head nearly springs off her neck.
I wish I could quote entire pages of dialogue between Zook and Moondog, but I can't for two reasons. One, none of it would make any sense out of context; and two, it wouldn't be half as funny as reading it exactly where it should be - in the middle of Stephanie's chaotic life.
