The Black Birth Part 5 :: The Sordid Shadow Within

The deceased typist, Hannah Pickering, is not what she seems. In her housemates' investigation of the poor girl's murder, Cyril and Deloras find themselves in the slums where "Hannah" goes by the name Miriam and has a tawdry reputation. They hope to discover more as they venture up to her attic apartment.

Meanwhile, after examining the scene of the crime, Ex-Federal agent Spade is convinced the young woman died from a bear attack - even though experienced tracker Hank Jr. can find no proof of animal or man having caused her untimely demise. The two return to the boarding house, ready to make their next move.
