"Tonight's the anniversary. You know that right?" O'Reilly had that solemn look on his face that a cop has to have when he stands over a dead body. The pre-dawn soot had started to snow down, the tarp that covered the tiny form turning from off-white to blackish-brown. "Suppose we do our part, and let these boys take her back to the cooler, till Doc can examine her."
Tonight marks the twentieth anniversary of these murders. A hundred and twenty-five that we know of have disappeared in those twenty years."
I love how the introduction starts out "dark and deep" and leaves you wondering about the murder--all the while expecting a great story. Will add this to the sidebar and I look forward to reading more chapters later on.
