“Dad says it's good to be a freak when normal people are idiots.”
Rachel Hamilton, The Case of the Exploding Loo

“Red herrings are fake clues put in place by writers and bad guys to stop you guess what's really going on. One of the most common is the mysterious death with no identifiable body - or, as I call it, the 'Dead Herring'.”
Rachel Hamilton, The Case of the Exploding Loo

“- Number of theories the police have come up with to explain Dad's disappearance = 27
- Number of intelligent theories the police have come up with to explain Dad's disappearance = 0”
