for the Levansky family,

is that right?

I think we have something.


Very attractive.

Oh, this?

Helps me think.


Come in, come in.

So what are you doing?

Ooh, pretty dry stuff, really.

You wouldn't be interested.

Try me.

Okay. ever hear

of Robert Levansky?

The arbitrage guy

who stole a lot of money.

Allegedly stole.

Uh, anyway,

I found his chauffeur.

He told me that

he regularly drove Levansky

up to a house in Knollwood.

Seems Levansky had a...


You mean a lover?


Well, yeah, yeah.

Yes, um...

It turns out this woman

flew to Geneva

six times last year.

Swiss bank accounts loaded

with the missing cash.

You sure you're only 1 4?

Almost 1 5.

Isn't it way past your bedtime?





So, um... whose pool?

That's Rockford's.

They're in Maine.

Guess they keep it

lit up for burglars.

Now, who would want

to steal a pool?

[Adrian] Hi!

You know, most people knock.

I did.

You didn't hear.

Is this you?

Mm-hmm. That is me

and David Cummings.


He's one ofthe great reporters

of his generation.

At one time, he had a byline

in every paper

across the country.

He was also my grandfather.

You were so cute.

Can I have it?

It's the only one I have.



You always write on a computer?

I'd be lost without it.

Makes you wonder

how your grandfather got along.

Then again, he wasn't writing

for trendy magazines, was he?

Ha ha ha.

Will you get out of here

and let me get dressed?

I got you something.

Oh, yeah?


Open it and fiind out.



Thankyou, Adrian.

Now I'm late.

Um, you're going to come

to my parents' party

on Saturday night, aren't you?

Uh, I don't know, Adrian.

My mother invited you.

I have a lot ofwork.
