19.

A man impersonated a piano tuner for over twenty years. He had faith some baby grand, somewhere, would open a secret bookcase to him if only he played the right tune. The detective dedicated to his arrest dusted for fingerprints on thousands of ivory keys in hundreds of credulous homes, always a meter behind. Unlike his quarry, the music of their escapade never deafened the detective’s heart.
