The story of Steve Wynn's unfortunate elbowing of a masterpiece has certainly gotten around. I am not sure that this is the kind of story that will make it into book 4, but you never know.

My favorite part of the story:
"Everyone had agreed to take what one participant called a “vow of silence.” (The vow lasted a week, until someone leaked the rudiments of the story to the Post.)"

Just in case anyone was wondering about the safety of telling or keeping secrets. Well, where would all us detectives, professional or not, be if everyone kept secrets??

Read the article that got this story so much coverage here.
