The Stakeout

The Puzzler

RAY: Here's the answer. And the hint is the two-door coupe, because when he looks into the car after it arrives, it's empty. Don't forget, he wakes up, the car is there, but it's empty.

TOM: Yeah.

RAY: He notices that the seat back is pushed forward. It's a two-door car. The third person in the car ...

TOM: Sneaked in while ...

RAY: He was in the back seat and got out. So the kahuna was riding up front, of course, and the other bodyguard was in the back seat. And when the three of them got out, the seat back was pushed forward, and he said, "Now I know the big boss is in the building."

TOM: Ah!

RAY: Because there were three people in the car this time and not just two. Who’s our winner?

TOM: The winner this week is Michael Wilke from Quaker Hill, CT. Congratulations, Michael!
