  • Have a good night madame! Nice seeing you tonight.
  • If that letter is exposed, it will ruin my reputation! Can you find it??
  • I will put out a search and offer a reward. We will find it!
  • How was this email purloined in such a way?
  • I need your help finding an email, an email of great power and importance, that could expose someone.
  • The man printed out the damaging email from the woman's computer, but she couldn't say anything, because her husband was there. She couldn't risk him reading the contents of the letter.
  • We can't find the email anywhere!!
  • It has to be somewhere!! Keep searching for it EVERYWHERE!
  • She asks Dublin, the Chief of Police, to find the email for her before the criminal uses it to expose her and ruin her reputation. 
  • I'll accept the reward when I find the email .
  • I'm still offering the reward, please look into the case for me.
  • Dublin consults an acquaintance about a reward for him finding the letter and returning it to him, before the criminal uses the power withheld in it. He agrees to look for it.
  • As he was distracted, I swiped the printout from his desk. He never suspects a thing.
  • Dublin tells his acquaintance about how they searched though the suspects apartment, not to find anything at all. He exhausted his mean in searching, to no avail.
  • The chief offers the $10,000 reward put out put by the woman for the discovery of the letter. He promises to look into the case. 
  • He proceeds to tell Dublin how he retrieved the email, without the criminal knowing. He had his the paper in plain sight, where no on searching would expect to look for it.
