Jim and Artie are summoned to a house in the woods, unaware that a man with a Gatling gun is watching them from the woods. The home belongs to Admiral Charles Agnow, who is in charge of Naval Intelligence for the Pacific Fleet. The agents knock at the door but get no answer, and discover that it’s unlocked. They go inside and find Agnow and three of his staff sitting at the table. They don’t respond and the agents realize that they’re dead. The drinks are poisoned with prussic acid, and a piece of paper has the name “Myron Kendrick” written on it. There are also several doodles with the letter Y and lightning bolts in them...

James: Congratulations.
Adam Barclay: Efficient as a stiletto, silent as the grave, and discrete as a hangman's wife.
