The detective glanced around and said softly "Not many people know this, but only half of the force I brought with me is inside the hotel. There's just as many people outside, under cover." That would mean ten police officers were stationed outside.
The man who'd entered the lobby earlier head to the stairs without checking in.
Terrance set the map aside. "I'll be right back, I need to speak with my father about something." He said. Terrance head for the elevator.
The doorway to the secret room opened. Donovan was standing there holding the girl Syoku had spoken to earlier by the arm. "Look who found a secret door inside the secret room?" Donovan said. Donovan seemed to know who she was, the so called 'secret door' couldn't be seen from the entry room.

"Who is this?" Detective Crow asked.
"Rachel Wright." Donovan answered. "though she's cleaned up a bit since she stayed here. I should also mention that she's the one who told the world about this treasure despite none of us telling her. If you want a candidate for 'phantom thief' I think she fits the bill." Donovan said. Rachel didn't say anything, she looked like she might cry. He hadn't made eye contact with the detective the whole time. Detective Crow thought for a moment.
"Where's this secret door?" Detective Crow asked.
"It leads from the supply closet in the other hallway to the room." Donovan answered. "I've already closed it up, just in case."
"Good." The detective said. "I'm going to speak to one of my men in the lobby, I trust him more than anyone. You two wait in the treasure room until I get back. You," He said a dressing Syoku "Watch this area until I get back. No one goes in or out of that door." Donovan agreed and closed up the secret door, leaving him and Rachel inside.
"Why don't you just call the guy in the lobby? or use your walkie talkie?" Serene said.
"Because we don't know for sure if that girl is The Shadow." he said. "And in the past, The Shadow has taped our calls and stolen our radios." Detective Crow answered. "I need to talk to him in person, I'll only be a few minutes." The detective said before sprinting for the stairs.
