Clay slips inside with Jacob and shuts the door behind them. He gets some cleaning supplies and puts it on the desk beside him so if anyone walked in, they could be pretending to clean. "You look at the computer, I'll go through these," he says in a hushed tone. Clay starts scanning through each of the papers looking for any of the clue words that might indicate it has anything to do with what we are working on.

Jacob checks the user name to see who's computer is this.
He will open drawers and letters.

Liz is not here to help us so we need to open the PC and plug off the hard drive.

Clay looks at a small pile of documents which seem to al relate to property purchases in Malta, some of the location names seem to ring bells. Most would seem to be plots of land.

OOC:   Is Jacob going to start taking the PC appart. NB Jacob is surprised there is a desktop PC here, most solicitors he know invariably take their work home with them and this means having a laptop.

Let me see...hmmm...looks good. take copies using your camera's phone and place it back.
I think I will not take the PC apart, we don't want to raise suspicious that someone might went in here, take nothing, just take photos.

Jacob decides, after he is done he takes some cleaning spray and wipe their fingerprints from the desk

"Already ahead of you." Clay was thinking the same thing as he started taking photos of anything that looked like it might be related.

Clay fans the papers out on the table and starts taking photos.

OOC:   Photography skill check please.

Clay takes a couple pictures, but his hands are shaking too much. "Oh this sucks, screw it." Clay grabs the papers in wants and shoves them into a trash bag. "These are coming with us." Clay goes over and checks any filing cabnets.

Having swept the papers into his bag, Clay takes another look around the room. Unless, he and Jacob sit down and go through the papers page by page there is nothing else obvious visible. There are none of the tall three drawer filing cabinets, Clay might expect to see in an office, there are however two large document cases (imagine a chest freezer but designed for the secure storage of documents) There is in Clay's opinion no way he could get into them without some serious tools. Jacob's seen their like in the offices of other high end solicitors and knows they are very expensive, but guarantee document security.

Clay kicks one of the large chests, "I bet what we need is in them there tubs. Well, I say we move onto the next room, but we won't go in the room further down, someone in there."

grabbing his bin bag Clay heads back out into the corridor, opening the second door he finds another room much like the first with perhaps a slight hint of the feminine to it. This room is distinctly neater than the first and their are no obvious loose papers hanging around.

OOC:   Spot hidden please.

Clay doesn't see any papers but he does notice something of interest.

There is a letter in the in out tray on the desk, from Alex Rudaj the only trustee for the “Kush nderton” charity who isn't also a partner in Redrupp and Vosper. The letter seems to be about administration of cash payments from charitable fund raising events being paid into the charities bank acounts. The letter gives an address in Beaconsfield an affluent market town to the NW of London.

Having searched the room, Jacob & Clay determine that if there is anything else of interest in this office it must be in the same secure document storage cases as the other office.

Search the drawers for the keys. If the owner of the office forget the keys in his home he must have a spare one hidden somewhere here.

The only keys the two men find are the ones for the Windows.

Clay, we must open the secure cases. can you force it open it somehow while I guard the corridor ?
Jacob says
We better find a vacuum cleaner to overcome the noise if we decided to do it by force.

OOC:   Clay has already determined that opening these document chests require the proper tools - were not talking crowbars, were talking diamond tipped drills, angle grinders and the like. It would be silly to spend big bucks on document safes, which are easily broken into.
