Hobbs and Archer stood in front of my desk like first-graders. Hobbs cleared his throat. “We followed the dust plumes as instructed. It was easy to keep the distance as she just kept within the speed limit. We went up a hill, round a corner – and she was gone.”

“Did you search the area for caves, hideouts, etc.?”

“Hm, err, no. We immediately reported, though.”

I felt the blood rushing into my head.

“This is unbelievable! She fooled you good! She is our only lead in this case – and you just let her vanish! Get out of my sight!”

They legged it.

This short outburst was good, didn’t solve the problem at hand though.

“Boss…”

Tony waved with a map. I went over to study the area. Indeed there were several caves. Bobbi might have hidden in one of them, waited for Hobbs and Archer to return to Whitelyn, and drove wherever she wanted to without being followed.
