Anxious People: Chapter 59 Summary & Analysis

Summary
Analysis
Back at the police station, Jack is shouting at the real estate agent to tell him why she asked for fireworks and where the real real estate agent is. The real estate agent is, of course, the actual real estate agent, but Jack isn’t ready to accept this yet. That would mean he’s missed something obvious. Finally, Jim suggests they take a break, but Jack snarls that the robber fooled Jim when he went up with the pizzas. Jack refuses to give up.
Readers now know that Jack is wrong and so is unfairly lashing out at the real estate agent. The obvious thing that Jack is missing, though, remains a mystery. Still, it’s worth noting that he seems to blame this mishap on Jim, as he essentially blames Jim for letting the robber fool him when he took the pizzas up.
