“Another Greedy Girl found dead. This is the third murder victim from Club
Greed this month. Last night, a neighbor heard shouting, then a gunshot, and
called the authorities. When police arrived, they found Julie Landers in her
apartment, face down, with a bullet to the back of her head. There was no
I glance at the TV playing in the Saint Pierce police station. The morning
show anchor rattles off details about the grim news while an image of a
smiling redhead standing on a beach pops up on the screen.
“It’s a damn shame,” Guy Adams, a Saint Pierce officer, says, taking his
chewing gum out of his mouth and sticking it under his desk. “A body like
that gone to waste.” He shakes his dark-haired head. “Damn shame.”
What’s a “damn shame” is that I have to call this man my partner. Him
and his disgusting gum chewing habits. After today, I’m hoping I won’t have
to deal with him again.
I’m still waiting to see if I made detective, so I can move up in the world.
Captain’s been promising me the promotion ever since I finished all the
required courses it takes to become a detective, but so far, nothing.
“Chloe, Captain’s been looking for you,” Marge, Captain Adler’s
secretary, says. “He’s in his office.” She scuttles off down the hallway, and I
follow her matronly figure, taking a deep breath as I approach his open door.
Here it goes.
“Congratulations, Bardot,” Captain greets me as I enter his office.
“You’re now a detective.” He’s always been very clipped and to the point, so
his no-frills announcement doesn’t phase me.
This isn’t the type of place to show emotion and do a happy dance, but I
can’t help the proud smile that lifts my lips. “Thank you, sir. You—”
“No time for accolades,” Captain Adler interrupts, his naked head shining
under the office’s fluorescent lights. “I’ve got your first assignment.”
All the excitement racing through me screeches to a halt. My smile
collapses because I already know what he’s going to say, and I’m
simultaneously filled with anticipation and dread. You can’t escape the news.
He nods, not meeting my eyes. “Here’s how I see it, Bardot.” His bushy
mustache moves along with his mouth. “Homicide needs your help with this
case. You in particular.”
“Why me in particular?” I ask, furrowing my brow. This is a high-profile
case, and I should be enthusiastic about the opportunity—yay for me—but
his phrasing of me “in particular” has alarm bells ringing in my head.
In a city with only eleven-thousand people, the police force is small, so
it’s no wonder they want me on the case. I think right now they’ll take all the
help they can get, but why me in particular?
I’ve been a kickass police officer, and I’m confident I’ll be a kickass
detective. I’m one of the youngest officers to become a detective in the Saint
Pierce Police Department. At twenty-seven, I’m already on my way to
becoming captain someday.
