PART OF CHAPTER 2
Here’s what I know, he said. Three weeks ago two people were murdered in Seattle. A woman and a son, killed in their own home. The police were called after a neighbour noticed smoke and came outside to see flames i the house. When the police get in they find Gina Anderson, thirty-seven, lying in the living room. Someone dislocated her jaw and broke her neck. The other side of the room was Joshua Anderson. He’d been shot in the head and then set on fire. According to the fire department it wasn’t this that burned the house, though the flames had only just got to that part when they arrived. The main blaze had been set in the basement, where the woman’s husband, Bill Anderson, had a workshop. From the debris it looked like someone had trashed the place, emptied out a bunch of filling cabinets full of notes and papers, and put a match to it all.
