    The sirens are closer now, soon they’ll be here, and all he has to go on is pure intuition. Unless, that is, his subconscious mind is already making the connections. It’s happened before; he didn’t get all those department commendations on Craigslist.

    1. Craigslist is website for trade info. It has anything to do with police?
    2. What is the department coomendations on Craigslist?
    3. Why did he not get the commendation?
    4. What are the connections he made?

    Thank so much.

    Let's start with the definition of a commendation:
    an award involving special praise.
    "the detectives received commendations for bravery"

    You are correct- Craigs list a website for trading. It has nothing to do with getting a commendation.
    The use of this comparison was;
    an analogy-- comparison of two different things.

    1. The comparison of crags list to getting /earning a commendation was meant to be funny. One must work very hard to get a commendation. You can not buy them on a web site.

      Bill did get the commendations - he has great insight, use of his detective skills, inner feelings, and thoughts in his mind that allow him to put clues together, make connections, and come to a conclusion.

      I can not remember exactly what the connection were-- been awhile since I read the book, but he was able to take things he saw and put them together in his mind and know what needed to be done.

      Hope that helps and did not confuse you more.:)
