Back to my mystery/thriller Red Tide at Morning. Former Philadelphia Detective Malcolm Stone, now working as a consultant with the Raven’s Passage PD, is examining a young woman’s body on the beach, and ruminating how something so terrible as murder never happened there in his home town.
It had been almost ten years since anyone had been murdered on the island.
I’d gotten so used to homicide back in Philly I’d become numb to it. I’d learned not to be afraid of death.
There’s something sobering about staring down at a corpse. You keep expecting them to sit up, to blink, to shift and shake themselves off like it was all a big joke.
I shuddered. Years melted away as I stood there.
The last dead body I’d seen before that morning had been that of my best friend.
