No wine cellar, no humidor, no Persian rugs or 36 Anthony Bidulka pantry full of foie gras. How could he possibly survive? The apartment did not appear to have been abandoned or left in a hurry. It did not look like a place from where someone had been abducted. Chavell was probably right. The last time Tom Osborn left his apartment, it had been on his own terms. I checked the closets. No suitcases. Very few clothes. And what there was looked like work clothes: suits, shirts, ties, shiny dress shoes.
Drawers and nooks and crannies that are often home to secrets, revealed none. I felt under furniture, checked behind pictures and in the refrigerator, rifled through books, sock drawers and stacks of papers, but came up empty.
