Example text

I don’t know if I can find a male dog in just 12 hours, Mr. ” I heard her gasp. ” “I’ll do it, too. She’s got enough hide on her to make two suitcases and a carry-on. ” I scratched Julia on the head, and she licked my chin. Her breath made me teary-eyed. ” “I’ll call you tomorrow morning with the details. ” “I…I already called the police. ” Hell. “Well, don’t call the police again. I have a friend at the Post Office who gives me a discount rate. ” I hit the disconnect. ” Thorpe asked. “Like a charm.

He’s the building owner,” Officer Johnson chimed in. ” “She had a shit for a boyfriend, a man named Glenn. ” “About ten days ago. I know because she asked me to change the lock on her door. ” “I did not. Ms. Hellerman just mentioned it to me in the elevator once. ” “No. ” “I’ll need to see tapes going back two weeks. ” Mortimer Hughes came out of the bathroom. He was holding a closed set of tweezers in one hand, his other hand cupped beneath it. “I dug a fiber out of the victim’s neck. ” I asked.

I realized, to my befuddlement, that I actually believed her. “Fine. ” Abigail handed me the leash. I stared down at the dog. It was a male, but I doubted I could fool Thorpe into thinking it was Marcus. Even if I shaved off all the fur and shortened the legs with a saw. ” I asked. She dug into her purse and pulled out a check. ” “It’s good. ” Abigail did the lip quiver thing again. “Oh my goodness, I didn’t even think of that. ” More tears. “Calm down. Don’t cry. ” I offered her a handkerchief.
