    Default Floor Count

    Something that is bothering me---floor count. Clearly, the Lobby is the first floor, and what is known as Floor One is actually Floor Two. The Venus Fly-Trap on the window sill of Travis Pupkin's apartment is on the second floor.

    There is no sign of an elevator in the South East corner of the building's roof on the front cover. Ergo, the elevator doesn't go there, and there is a private staircase from the 14th floor (Turnky's floor) to the roof. This is a 15 storey building, with a Lobby, 13 floors/apartments, and a roof.

    The sketch pad has 14 buttons for the lobby and 13 floors. The elevator doesn't go to the roof. If the clock motif is up/down, there should be a fulcrum of sorts between the 7th and 8th floors. There is a trapdoor visible between the 6th and 7th floors.

    Default Trapdoor

    Perchprism, do you mean what appears to be a trapdoor under Jigsy's sofa and rug near the large blue balloon with red stars?

    Default Number of crimes/criminals/items of loot

    Dodge specified that Bud and Gus (later corrected to Gene) were the only innocent people in the building. Gus also implied in his correction that it was Bud and Gene out of the residents and employees in the building, and that he at least, and I would suppose Dodge as well, were innocent up to that point.

    But in particular, Ternky was not among the innocent. Yet we have 12 numbers. It has been pointed out that Ternky has some perhaps suspiciously faithful reproductions of famous art. But did Dodge have something else in mind? Is there a 13th buried item with clues from the 13th floor?

    We know exactly when Gus made each drawing of the interior floors of the Ternky Tower, but when did he have access to the roof? How was this drawing made? Did Gus somehow have access to Ternky's helicopter?

    Does the confidential assistant know more than he lets on?

    I was just considering this yesterday, considering gus's last update was "friends are forever." Perhaps a twist involving a twintig heel turn?
