Arson. David’s jaw clenched as the platform rose. Had to be. He’d seen it before, up close and way too personally. The wind shifted again and he flinched when the flames lurched his way. For a split second he lost his footing. Focus, boy. Stay alive. ” Jeff’s voice was urgent amid the crackling. ” The platform rose a few more feet, lifting him alongside a large picture window.

Only the morgue rig would be transporting tonight. As her feet moved, she found herself searching the fire trucks for station numbers, another habit she’d picked up in the last seven months, one she found nearly as distasteful as her new fear of dead bodies.
