A Mr. Edwin Mayer hoped to be able to sneak him in at that time, or so squeaked his nasal-voiced secretary.
But in spite of his uninspiring appearance, Edwin Mayer was fully in command.
"Don't mind those guys," Mayer said after introductions.
Mayer readily agreed and Dean produced a hand-held recorder from his briefcase.
"This whole business is a damn shame," Mayer repeated.
Mayer took no time in responding.
Mayer pushed up his sleeve and scratched a bony elbow before continuing.
Mayer shook his head.
Chernak handed a thick folder to Dean, smiling at Mayer as if he were waiting to be introduced.
"Thanks, Joe," Mayer said, excusing Chernak, who looked disappointed as he reluctantly left.
Before Dean could answer, Mayer returned and Rudman beat a hasty retreat to his cubby hole.
Mayer said, "And quite a lady."
Mayer thought a minute.
Mayer turned to Dean as he and the detective moved back to Mayer's office.
Dean continued to question Mayer but learned nothing more of substance.
Dean began packing up to leave but Mayer drew him aside.
Mayer promised to send the full file with Byrne's picture from the now near-closing personnel office, located in another building.
Dean passed out his business card to Mayer and a few of the other workers in case anything important came to mind.
The names and offices visited recurred regularly as Mayer had described.
The job evaluations of Jeffrey Byrne in the personnel file surprised Dean, as they were considerably more glowing than the picture Mayer had painted of the missing man.
After Dean had informed him of the lack of progress, he questioned Mayer about the glowing appraisal.
Dean also asked Mayer about the one day Byrne had been absent—a Thursday the fourth of March—about two months earlier.
Mayer added that Byrne was back to work the following day, but made no reference to his absence.
Dean made a note to ask Cynthia Byrne about the incident.
The knee injury Mayer mentioned had occurred a year before and while it might have kept Byrne from jogging, it was no more than a temporary ailment.
Mr. Mayer at World Wide suggested it.
Mayer was something else—have a service, bury the guy in absentia and get him the hell off the books.
Mr. Mayer did say he was going to talk to them about some sort of advance to hold me over.
Mr. Mayer has been very kind.
He recognized Edwin Mayer and a few of the other employees of World Wide, although he didn't see Jackie Rudman, the young man who had squealed on Cece Baldwin.
Edwin Mayer rose to speak.
The Jeffrey Byrne Mayer eulogized was a far different man than Mayer had described in his Philadelphia office.
Unlike the priest, Mayer made no pretext that Byrne wasn't as dead as a Jacob Marley's knocker and, as Mayer described, was "walking the streets of gold with the angels."
Dean stepped to the sidewalk and waited for Cynthia to emerge from the church, but when she did, a crowd of friends and well wishers surrounded her, with the Mayer-the-leech encircling her shoulder with his scummy arm.
The neighbors haven't seen her and she isn't out with Mr. Mayer either.
Dean forced a pot full of evil thoughts about the beanpole bastard Edwin Mayer aside in deference to his concern over Cynthia's whereabouts.
He identified himself, and told Mayer everything was under control and he needn't worry.
Mayer responded he was leaving to play golf but would call again when he returned.
He hung up before Mayer could protest.
Not like Mayer and half those whoozies.
The players sped through Dean's mind like a theater curtain call—Vinnie and his friends, Mayer from World Wide, or Arthur Atherton's nefarious clients.
Mayer, a physician at Heilbronn, published an attempt to determine the mechanical equivalent of heat from the heat produced when air is compressed.
Mayer made an assumption the converse of that of Seguin, asserting that the whole of the work done in compressing the air was converted into heat, and neglecting the possibility of heat being consumed in doing work within the air itself or being produced by the transformation of internal potential energy.
