Through force of will, Tara Mitchell chased away the vision relentlessly
gnawing at her.
Maybe tomorrow, perhaps the next day, possibly the day after that would be
the right time to mourn for Trevor Hart. But on this December day, only
twenty-four hours since the eleven-year-old's mutilated body was
discovered, the veteran Monroe County homicide detective could not--would
not--allow the specter of a murdered child on a Florida Keys beach cloud
She had a job to do, another interview with a potential suspect to conduct.
Should it begin to bear fruit, any display of emotion would prevent her
from doing what she does better than anyone else--persuading a killer to
give a human voice to his own inhumanity
There would be time to remember Trevor Hart, but not now, not as she opened
the door to Interview Room No. 2 in the homicide squad offices, smiled and
greeted the bearded, disheveled, homeless man sitting at the metal table.
