It was difficult to tell which definition

Hippos were adhering to…


…if they were not actually swimming

they were certainly immersed in water.

In the meantime, in Las Vegas, Detective Rebecca Moran, an ambitious young detective, is tasked with solving a series of unusual murders.  Could Moran’s murder be related to the Mechanic’s murders?

Could Moran’s murder be related to the Mechanic’s murders?
