  1. Man… that was good stuff. Sigler’s got the ability to write well in short form and long form. Nice job reading as well, Steve.

    I just read this podcast and, even though the story was well written, I wonder about the motivation of the daughter. Seems like a pretty large plot hole because *SPOILER!!!!*

    Because if he’s killed 12 other would be assasins, why the heck would she let this stranger into her apartment so quickly? Espically since she was trying to hide (making it hard for people to track her father down by going by her madien name) it just didn’t make sense that she would believe his reporter story and would let him in.

    Maybe she let him in because she suspected he wasn’t really a reporter.
