Cora marched up the small trail through the woods, glancing eerily from
side to side, searching the trees for any hidden threats.
Normally, she wouldn’t take meetings away from familiar territory. But
now that she was back in West Virginia, her old childhood stomping grounds,
she felt familiar enough with most terrain. Plus, Gabriel Finch had sounded
urgent on the phone.
She grumbled a bit, kicking a pinecone off the path and wondering why
