The Legendary Man Chapter 571

Chapter 571 Interlaced

Seeing that Leslie was spacing out while looking at her coffee cup, Jasper lit another cigarette. “Leslie, did you even listen to what I just said?”

“Huh?” After getting her thoughts interrupted, Leslie finally snapped back to her senses. “I’m sorry, Mr. Hoffman. There was something on my mind earlier. What did you say?”

Jasper flicked his cigarette over the ashtray. “It’s nothing. I was just saying how it must be tiring for you to be running about to solve the missing person case.”

“Don’t mention it. It’s my duty as a police officer,” Leslie answered with a smile.

“No. Your job is to analyze and deduce. Now that the mastermind is known to be Ryan, it’s time to carry out the search operation. What I’m trying to say is that your job is done, so I would like to give you a long break. You deserve to rest.”

Although Jasper had spoken nonchalantly, Leslie noticed that something was off. As the person in charge of the criminal investigation division in Summerbank, Jasper had always cared for his subordinates.

Yet, Leslie showcased excellent deduction skills in the missing person case. It was for sure she could get an award for it for being able to pinpoint the true mastermind through bits and pieces of clues. Thus, it was weird that Jasper had ordered her to go on a holiday when they were so close to capturing the mastermind.

No matter how one looked at it, it seemed that Jasper was discarding Leslie once he had no use for her and trying to take credit for her hard work.

Back then, Jasper had even mentioned how he wished Leslie could work twenty-four hours to solve cases in the criminal investigation division.

However, Jasper was now taking the initiative to grant Leslie a leave. It was shocking how his attitude had changed over time. When Leslie saw the hint of a smile in Jasper’s eyes, thousands of thoughts flashed across her mind.

She sighed and asked, “Mr. Hoffman, there are only two of us now, so I’ll refer to you as Jasper instead. Did my father tell you to do this?”

Upon hearing Ryan’s words, Carmelo nodded. “I’ll make her speak.”

With a tap of Carmelo’s walking stick, a wave of unlimited negative emotions pierced through Lynn’s mind.

Lynn was initially unconscious, but her eyes suddenly snapped open when the spiritual energy entered her body.

“Ah!” Lynn screamed while gripping her hair. From her reaction, she seemed as though she wanted to rip her head apart.

“Disperse.” Followed by Carmelo’s command was the end of Lynn’s struggle.

After that, Lynn lay on the floor and stared at the sky soullessly.

“I’ve dispersed all of her spiritual sense. You can start asking her questions when she still has some sense left in her,” Carmelo told Ryan while panting.

Ryan nodded. “Who’s the cultivator who appeared at your house?”

“Cultivator… I don’t know…”

“What do you mean by you don’t know?” Ryan furrowed his eyebrows. After that, he thought of something. “On the day of your father’s funeral, who was the one who helped you?”

“Jonathan Goldstein.”

Those two simple words left Ryan stunned. “Jonathan? Jonathan Goldstein? How could it be him? How could he be here?”

Carmelo asked the flustered Ryan, “Ryan, you know who this Jonathan Goldstein is?”

“Him? The Gomez family fell because of him! He murdered my grandfather and father.”
