By the time the car had made it to the gallery, Gray had secured a search-with-entry warrant for the gallery, as well as a quick probe into the background of the receptionist on file. Audrey Mason had been in the employ of Alexis Donner for the past three years, just before the gallery started. He did what he should have done in the first place before going to see Black-Eyes - he had the computer run a precis on the gallery, specifically on the work done by the man that Donner had referred to as Lindzer Yates.
The truth was that there was no such man attached to the gallery. There certainly was no artist by that name either, especially attached to such strong artistic content. There was no Yates attached to the gallery, at all nor was there a Lindzer - but there was the pretty timid, girl behind the reception desk, the girl who had been with Donner as his gallery moved from New York to Seattle. The girl who a recent art site whispered might well be Donner’s next protege. Her last name - Yin - didn’t ring any bells, but her first name certainly did.
