Anxious People: Chapter 50 Summary & Analysis

Summary
Analysis
Back in the interview room, the real estate agent’s face goes white. She looks ready to cry as Jack says that the agent knows nothing; real estate agents can’t possibly be this bad at their job. The agent looks to Jim for help, but Jack bangs his fists on the table and says that nobody else mentioned the agent. She asked for fireworks to distract the police and walked out with everyone else. He demands the truth.
Though the Realtor’s reaction suggests Jack might be correct, it’s worth noting that the narrator and Zara already said that the real estate agent was objectively bad at their job. So, this would certainly be a neat way to tie up how the robber got out of the apartment, but at this point, it’s impossible to tell if Jack is right.
