4. Mr. Babbage

In the third Tess Durban adventure, Tess and Abby will try to track down a person called Victor William Babbage. A simple directory search turns up a V. W. Babbage nearby, but he is not altogether there anymore and he’s probably not the person they’re looking for. However, a weird thing he said that the girls initially chalk up to dementia talking turns out to be the clue that leads them to the real Victor.
