Crabapple Court -- an excerpt

“Your Mom is right, boys.  The police will come here to question all of us.  Is there anything; anything at all you know about the disappearance of Susie?”

            “No, Dad, nothing.”

            “Are you okay, Heather?” Ernie asks.

            “I’m mad at myself, Ernie.  I never should have sedated Patricia and put her to sleep before she had a chance to talk to the police.  I didn’t even think twice about what I was doing. I could have used a lighter form of sedation without putting her out.  It was really stupid of me to do what I did.”

            “Don’t beat yourself up, Heather.  You did what you thought was right at the time.  Let it go.  What’s done is done.  When the police get here I just want everybody to relax.  Boys, just be sure to speak the truth and the questioning will soon be over.”


It isn’t until early the following day that the doorbell rings.  Peering through the living room window Heather can see a tall man in a grey suit standing near the front door.  Though not in uniform she thinks he looks like a cop.  Ernie and the boys are out with the search party.  She is home alone.  He looks like a cop, she thinks, but what if he isn’t?  Feeling totally on edge she doesn’t know whether to answer the door or not.
            The doorbell rings again.

Crabapple Court is a novella available in both Kindle and Paperback formats on all Amazon sites.
