Chapter 10 Keith Helps Out

第10章基思相助!

 

Four mistakes... but are they really mistakes?

 

四处错误……可这些真的是错误吗?

 

Not spelling mistakes really but missing letters. Let's see... the missing letters are I, N, E and M...

N-E-M-I... no, M-E-N-I... no, they don't mean anything. M-I-N-E – mine perhaps? Yes, of course!!! Where's my project on Cornwall, CORNWALL, A FASCINATING LAND?

 

并不是拼写错误而是字母省略。再看看……省略的字母是I,N,E和M……

N-E-M-I……不是,M-E-N-I,没意义,也不是!M-I-N-E-mine,有可能吗?是的,对了!!! 我写的那篇关于康沃尔的文章呢?那篇康沃尔——迷人之乡放哪儿了呢?

 

Later, at the police station.

Can I speak to Detective Simpson, please?

What about?

It's about Samantha King...

Okay, wait a minute...

Yes, can I help you?

Yes, I... think I've got a clue...

A clue?

 

之后,警察局里。

请问,我能与辛普森侦探谈谈吗?

谈什么?

关于萨曼莎·金。

好的,请稍等……

有事吗?

是的,我……我想我找到了一条线索……

线索?

 

Yes, it's about that missing girl there in that picture...

You mean Samantha King?

Yes... I think I know where she is! Look at these mistakes in Sam's message!

What do you mean? I don't understand...

They're not spelling mistakes, they're missing letters, I-N-E-M…

I still don't get it… What does it mean?

I think it's an anagram! M-I-N-E-mine! Sam's in a mine! The area around Land's End, from Pendeen Watch to Cape Cornwall, is full of old mines and a mine is a good place to hide someone.

Mmm interesting! Let me call the police station in Land's End…

Good afternoon, this is Plymouth Police Station… it's about the missing girl, Samantha King. We have reason to believe that Samantha is hidden in a mine in the area near Land's End...

 

是的,关于那幅照片中失踪女孩的线索……

你是说萨曼莎·金?

是的……我想我知道她在哪儿!您看萨姆邮件中的这些错误!

什么意思?我不明白……

这些不是拼写错误,而是字母省略,I-N-E-M。

我还是不明白……这说明了什么呢?

我想这是一个重新排列字母的游戏!M-I-N-E-mine!萨姆在一个矿井里!从彭丁瞭望台到康沃尔角的天涯海角附近,到处都是废弃的矿井。矿井可是个藏人的好地方!

恩,有意思!我这就给天涯海角的警察局打电话。

下午好,这里是普利茅斯警察局……关于失踪女孩萨曼莎·金,我们有理由相信她被藏在天涯海角附近的一座矿井里……
