There was usually some evidence that the dead kept to themselves, a secret they had taken with them, a secret the killer forgot. In every homicide case she’d investigated, there had been something that the dead had held back. She just had to find it.

Was he watching her now? She looked around, but saw nothing. Imagined she heard footsteps, but it was only the rain. The wind blew harder. The tree shadows lashed back and forth on the wall of the band shell in tortured shapes, as if they were being strangled. She stared out at the park. Something caught her eye in the gleam of the streetlight, wet and shiny at the edge of the stage. A matchbook. Laura had been over every inch of this stage earlier today, and she knew the matchbook had not been there when they removed the body.

She could see the creases. She leaned to look at where the girl’s back departed from the wall. The dress had been zipped up only halfway. No tag. Laura took a deep breath and looked into the girl’s eyes. She had seen many people who had died violently.
