Kat and Ted look through the pictures they developed from Salim’s camera. At first, they don’t think that there’s anything useful in them, but when they blow a couple up to larger sizes, they spot the man who gave them the ticket Salim used! They’re able to decipher the words on his t-shirt (partially blocked by his jacket), and that gives them their first big lead–the security company the man works for!
Kat goes to Earl’s Court to see if she can find the man working there. Ted follows her. It turns out that the event at Earl’s Court is a motorcycle show!
People living in England measure things using the metric system–you may have noticed Ted talking about distances in terms or kilometres (or kilometers) instead of miles, and describing the size of hailstones in millimetres (or millimeters) rather than inches. Have you learned about the metric system in school?
While they’re at the motorcycle show, Kat takes a ride on a light bike. Have you ever ridden any sort of motorbike, or a motorized scooter?
Who do you think will solve the mystery first? Kat and Ted have the pictures and a list of theories, but the police have more experience solving mysteries.
