Wilder Investigations' latest assignment brought them to Sir Speedy Printing. "One of my presses caught fire due to a paper lint buildup," explained the exasperated manager. "It only lasted a few seconds, but my fervently religious press operator won't come back because he thinks the Devil got inside the press."

Matt and Charlie exchanged looks, communicating silent plans. "On it," said Matt as they entered the press room.

After a few minutes, they returned. Charlie presented a paper plate holding a partially eaten toasted cheese sandwich. "Tell him it's safe to come back," said Charlie. "His sandwich looks like Jesus."
