"Bring it along," Zara says of the car. "May as well make it slow going for evil Tony to get back to town."

"How do you know I'm not the evil Tony?" says the investigator with a wicked twinkle in his eye. "Very well, I'll take the Roller. There doesn't seem to be much of interest around here, so perhaps we have enough time to make it to Palo Alto?"

"All right," says Liz. "I'll drive the bus." She shows them the folded C note she found. "This is origami. I wonder if our Japanese friends are involved."

The oddly paired vehicles head into Palo Alto as the hour grows late. By the time the investigators reach the area indicated on the map, Mo is awake.

"That's Daddy's house," she says, pointing at a mansion on a low rise, overlooking Stanford University. "Don't tell him what happened, OK? He won't be surprised that I ran out on the party for my--" she rolls her eyes and sighs "-- stepmother and looked for some fun on my own."

During the drive here it can be seen that the other addresses marked on the map are quite close together, and all within a moderate walk to the university.

"Shall we go check them out?" Zara asks.

"I think so, yes. One property each?"

He smiles at Mo.

"You can rely on our discretion my dear. Perhaps you'd best head home; no doubt your father will be extremely relieved to see you."

"Agreed," says Liz, "but there are four of us, and three other locations. Maybe one of us should go with Mo to make sure that bounder doesn't try again. It's been great meeting you, Mo. Mum's the word. I'm glad we were able to help."

Pleased by the willingness of her new acquaintances to keep quiet, Mo grins and grabs Zara's hand. Leading her to the mansion, she whispers "We've just been out drinking, OK?" No doubt the shared bottle of gin back at the drive-in led Mo to select Zara for this ploy.

Before they quite reach the front door, it is pulled open by a middle-aged man in a rumpled tuxedo.

"About time you got back, young lady," he says sternly. "Your mother and I --"

"She's not my mother," Mo replies as she leads Zara into the elegantly furnished home.

"We were worried about you," the man continues. He sighs, and relaxes slightly. "At least you didn't bring home some boy. And you smell like booze, not that Mary Jane stuff." He stares at Zara. "I suppose this is one of your hippie friends, looking for a place to sleep it off?"

The others head out to the three remaining houses. One is dark, and nobody answers to repeated ringing of the doorbell. At another, largest of the four, a butler opens the door and merely says "Yes?" At the third, smaller than the others, a man in casual clothing can be seen working with some power equipment in his garage.

Spoiler:
let me know who is investigating which house.

Tony opts for the first, seemingly deserted house. After waiting a polite amount of time, he stealthily looks for a way to the rear of the property, sneaking a glance through the windows as he goes.

"Hey dude," Zara says. "No MJ or acid, swear. Mo said it's her stepmom's birthday - I could do her a picture."

Lew takes the second house. As the butler opens the door, Lew responds politely to his inquiry.

"Good day Sir. I was involved in an motor vehicle hit and run accident just outside town. The man was driving a Rolls Royce and as he sped away, a map flew out of his window. On that map was marked an "X" at this location. Can you tell me who owns this house and whether they own a Rolls?"
