    The Case of the Missing Brady Jersey

    Chapter 1. “We have a situation,” the lieutenant began. His call interrupted my second nightcap. “I’m listening,” I said. “A football jersey has gone missing.” I swallowed and let out a low whistle. “The owner is one Tom Brady,” he said. “A.k.a. husband of Gisele Bündchen, New England Patriots quarterback and most valuable player of tonight’s Super Bowl.

I’d lived in Portland for a while after college, and some acquaintances there needed a house sitter. Another friend was away for the summer and happy to loan me her pickup truck. Someone on Craigslist sold me a bike for next to nothing. In very ...
