Mr. Freedman gave his doted son Gabe a ticket to meet in the baseball stadium as an eleventh birthday present, but the knave never arrived. The model pupil was atypically distracted, and sold the ticket with profit to a scalper, joined a dubious gang and got into unprecedented trouble raiding a shop where the owner got badly hurt. After Martin Fitzgerald's brilliant work sifting tips from the mostly useless public to help work out Gabe wasn't abducted or running away but going somewhere, actually in search of his biological father, having found out he's adopted, Martin is finally taken along on field mission. Gabe took off to Texas to his 'dad', but the real one, which his parents didn't even know, died years ago, so it's probably a pedophile trap. Written by
Did You Know?
Father and son are waiting together for the train at 57th Street for a train to take them to Yankee Stadium, then the father says that he expected Gabe to get off "at the next stop," which was 66th Street. This contains multiple errors: 1) only the "F" train stops at 57th Street, but it does not go to Yankee Stadium; 2) 66th Street would be the "next stop" only the "1" train, which does not stop at 57th Street, where they were waiting, but does stop at 59th Street/Columbus Circle; 3) the "1" train does not go to Yankee Stadium, but the "D" train, which also stops at 59th Street/CC, does, so it makes no sense that they would take the "1" when they could have gotten the "D" in the same place.
