Turtle is one of the most intelligent and misunderstood characters in the book. It stands to reason that she would need someone at least as intelligent and capable of reading people as she is...therefore, Chris is the perfect choice. Someone like Doug Hoo would never do...he's too self-absorbed with his running. None of the other characters in the novel seem to fit...perhaps a younger version of Sam Westing/Mr. Eastman/Sandy McSouthers/Barney Northup. Someone smart, sly, cunning, personable, and able to keep up with her!

THEO THEODORAKIS. Remember it said at the very end of the book the "Wexler-Theodorakis Mansion". And also Theo said to Grace "Who's the attractive young woman over there talking to Flora Baumach?" and grace answered that it was Turtle, or T.R.
