The Untreed Detectives


[ from the short story Breathing Under Water ]
I found the road without much trouble, but about 30 feet off the highway it was blocked by a green farm gate with a rusted "No Trespassing" sign and secured by a heavy chain and padlock. I got out of my car. There were no buildings in sight, but the road made a sharp right turn and disappeared around some boulders.
Now what, I thought. I went back to the car, locked my purse inside, put the keys in my jean's pocket, and climbed over the gate. I got no further than the bend in the road when the man who had been with Caroline stepped out. I remembered his name was Jimmy. He was carrying a large gun over his shoulder.
