“Four people killed in the same hospital by the same overdose of the same painkiller?” Pete queried.

“That’s it,” Trent said.

“Sounds suspicious, all right,” Pete agreed. “Do you have the names?”

Pete stopped him when Trent read off the third name.

What Pete told him next led to the solution.

The puzzle solved, Trent and Pete turned to more pleasant things. They each had ordered Fromagio’s Coppa Cubano Melt sandwich.
