The Short Drop

CHAPTER FORTY-THREE


Highlights

"Hi, Mrs. Lombard, this is Gibson Vaughn. It's been a long time, but I hope you're well. You made the best sandwich I ever ate. I miss the old days at Pamsrest, and I hope the place is still standing," he said, pausing as he shifted gears.

"Mrs. L., I know this is a strange way to approach you, but I believe you'll come to see that these are extraordinary circumstances. I've learned something about Suzanne, about Bear, that you need to hear. In person. I've included photographs that I believe prove the truth of what I have to say. I don't want anything. Only the opportunity to speak to you, and you alone. To tell you the truth."
