Nigel Perkins: This week has been a busy one for Nigel. He’s had to work more than usual because his company has discovered some very important evidence. Two months ago, a large life insurance company asked Nigel’s firm to investigate an unusual case. A 62 year-old man had died six months before and his 32 year-old wife, an ex model, had received seven million dollars from the insurance company. The man died of a heart attack. During the investigation, Nigel’s company discovered that the woman had bought a large amount of medicine for people who suffer hemophilia. It is the worst kind of medicine for people who have bad blood circulation. Nigel was a good friend of the man who had died. He felt that it was his obligation to help personally in the investigation.
