One day a very rich man was counting his money when he got a very important phone call and he had to leave in a hurry. In his haste he left a one hundred dollar bill on the table. When he came home he noticed the money was missing and he asked the two only other people in the house what happened. The maid said she saw the bill on the table while dusting the library and she hid it under the book. The butler said he got the bill and put it between pages 35 and 36 because he thought it would be safer in the book than under the book. One of them is lying. Who? Why?
