Tweedy Flynch visits his old friend and fellow Professor Emeritus, Buck Calhoun. After more than twenty years of teaching, Buck in Criminal Justice, and Tweedy in Philosophy, they're resigned to their disparate worldviews. Buck's retirement is active. His education and training provide the basis for consultations and counseling in police work. Tweedy's retirement keeps him in his home-office, reading and writing. On this visit, Buck seeks Tweedy's cooperation in resolving questions related to an old murder case, the Bravo Case. No charges were filed against the alleged murderer there being witnesses, physical evidence, and only an anymous telephone call and document describing two murders in a local hospital. Were the deaths of two male hospital patients in the same wing, at about the same time natural deaths attributed to the risks of recovery from surgery, or murders as alleged in the anymous communications? Buck claims that luck plays a critical role in solving many crimes and that without it even more murders would never be solved. Tweedy denies the concept, category and existence of luck. Thus disagreement begins. In the end, Buck elicits a plan of action from his old friend.
