The Woman Who Disappeared
Philip Prowse

This story is about a private detective "Lenny Samuel". He is a wise and clever guy but little bit silly.
One day, a beautiful lady came to his office and asked him to search her sister. She said she and her sister are twins. Lenny asked her that she asked the police or not, but she said that she didn't want to let the police know about this.
She is doubtful...she has a secret???
