Sample text

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. Every condo on the upper floors had them. He saw no flames, but smoke billowed from the smaller windows which had already burst from the heat.

Scotty was frowning at the girl’s hands. ” David’s captain and two uniformed cops joined them, the three of them bending over the gurney to see her hands. ” one of the cops asked. “I don’t know, but whatever it is, it reflects light. I saw her handprints on the window,” David told him. “My light hit the glass and the prints shone. Fire investigator’s going to want to sample it. If she set this fire, she got stuck up there and panicked. ” “If she didn’t do this fire, it’s murder,” the other cop said.

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.
