DORTMUNDER SAID, Whats taking so long? We been driving for forty-five minutes.

Ive been taking some extra turns and cutbacks, Murch said, to confuse the boys sense of direction. Thats what they did in the book.

In the meantime, Dortmunder said, the cops are out looking by now.

We should have picked up the detour signs, Kelp said. We shouldnt have left them behind like that.

We dont need them any more, Dortmunder told him. And I dont want to waste any more time. To Murch he said, So lets go straight to the farmhouse. No more extra turns?

Well, Murch said.

Dortmunder looked at him. What do you mean, well?

Well, the fact is, Murch said. He was blinking a lot as he drove, and looking troubled, even embarrassed. The fact is, he said, I think I took too many extra turns and cutbacks already.

Youre lost?

Well, Murch said, not exactly lost.

What do you mean, not exactly lost?

Well, there was a road I thought was down this way, and it isnt here. I cant seem to find it.

If you cant seem to find the road youre looking for, Dortmunder said, that means youre lost. Exactly lost.

It would help if the sun was out, Murch said. It was late afternoon now, and the sky was filling with clouds.

I think its gonna rain, Kelp said.

Dortmunder nodded. And were lost.

If I take the next left, Murch said, we should be all right.

You think so, Dortmunder said.

Maybe, Murch said.
