Archer Mayor The Disposable Man Chapter 1 Ron Klesczewski drove with both hands on the wheel, his eyes intent on the twisting dirt road ahead. Do we know for sure this isnt a dog or a dead deer or something Tyler asked from the backseat. I twisted around to face him. Not according to Sheila. She checked it out. Its definitely a man. J.P. Tyler scowled silently into his lap. A suicide, I bet, he said glumly. The forensics expert of my four-member squad, he was along for good reason, but hed been ...

The lighting shrouded the whole place with an uncharacteristic intimacy, enhancing the quiet isolation I enjoyed when working after hours. The phones sudden, electronic chirping came as a jarring intrusion. Gunther. Lieutenant, this is Marshall Smith. Pierre and I are down at the Retreat. I think weve found someone you been wanting ...

Archer Mayor The Ragmans Memory 1 Joe Youve got a visitor. I looked up from the paperwork spread across my desk. Harriet Fritter, the squads administrative assistant, stood in the doorway with a half-smile on her face. I glanced at the calendar thumbtacked to the wall before me, wondering what appointment Id forgotten. There was nothing under todays date. Harriet stepped aside and gestured to a small, skinny girl with large, thick, wire-rim glasses, looking very serious. I guessed her to be ...

Archer Mayor The Dark Root 1 M-80, O-45. It was late, cold, and the streets had been quiet for hours, giving the tension in the callers voice a chilling element of dread. I paused on my way to the wall-mounted mail slots as the night dispatcher leaned forward and depressed the transmit button with his thumb. 80. Charley Davis kept his voice flat, only his narrowed eyes betraying his concentration. Every call was a potential crisis, and the police dispatcher was the crucial linchpin. Im on a ...

Archer Mayor Fruits of the Poisonous Tree 1 I woke with a start, muscles tense, my eyes darting around the darkened, familiar room. There was no sound, nothing amiss, no obvious cause for alarm. I was alone, in bed, in my apartment-as usual. I pushed back the covers and swung my feet to the floor, wincing slightly as the cold hit my body. It was early fall, not even foliage season, but the nights were already yielding to occasional temperature drops, warning shots from an approaching winter. I ...

Archer Mayor The Skeletons Knee Part One 1 I have a body for you. The voice on the line-smooth, cultured, and completely serious-was Beverly Hillstroms, Vermonts chief medical examiner. I cradled the phone between my shoulder and cheek and poured several packets of sugar into my coffee. Unlike the larger urban charnel houses of New York or Los Angeles, the Brattleboro, Vermont, Police Department did not export corpses to the MEs office for autopsy every day of the week, nor even once every six ...

Want us to check it out I turned at the quiet voice, looking over my shoulder to the top of the embankment. Two young men in white shirts with Rescue, Inc. shoulder patches stood above me. The taller one had a medical kit in his hand. Behind them, only half visible from where I stood, was a large, boxy ...

He was a butcher by trade, a collector of vintage cars from the 60s, who still lived with his mother on the family homestead. But while also the second son of a lifelong Vermont farmer, now long passed on, he wasnt any more connected to the soil or dependent upon the weather than the average bank teller. Even as a kid, hed ...

This room and the barn across the road had always been his sanctuaries-places of private celebration during high times, as when Beverly Cable allowed him a kiss in the eighth grade-and harbors to which he retired in pain, as now, when Marianne had once again suggested that they should try seeing other people.

He straightened, used the edge of a towel hanging to the right of the mirror to mop his cheeks and chin with the same hand, and studied his reflection in the harsh fluorescent light. He wasnt looking for flaws in his shaving. And, God knows, there was no narcissism taking place. Willy was the first to ...

It was falling in thick, light flakes, like goose down meandering earthward after a well-conducted pillow fight. An avuncular man, Snuffy was the sheriff from the county next door-called Daniel only by his oldest female relatives-and as canny a politician as he was old-fashioned a police officer. He liked things simple and straightforward, or so he said, which put him ...

It was so dark I felt if I did, more light might fall out than enter, sapping what little energy I had left. I remembered having the same sensation once as a kid, when my brother Leo and I had hidden in one of our fathers grain boxes in the barn, closed the cover over us, and shut out all light and air. Lack of oxygen hadnt been the issue, though-we were out of there, pale and laughing too ...

Even with the starlight and the feeble seepage from the street lamps around the corner, my eyes took longer to adjust than I expected. The police officer at the bottom of the Arch Street alley looked up at me quizzically as I hesitated beside the car, my hands burrowing deep inside my pockets. You okay, Lieutenant He was stringing a yellow Police Line tape across the way. I shuddered and nodded, walking down ...
