Book 11: Massively Parallel — Part II: Barsoom Circus Command


'CHELLE: Are you sure there was no trace of Boomex here?

SCHLOCK: Not a sniff, and I sniffed everywhere.  And I crawled into some strange, stinky places, too.

SCHLOCK: Boomex is distinctive.  Nobody here has been around the stuff in months.  Whoever used it wasn't from the circus, and didn't bring the stuff here to load the cannon.

'CHELLE: Unless they cleaned up after themselves really well.

SCHLOCK: Trust me when I say that nobody here cleans up that well.  Or often enough.
