T S E LIOT The W aste Land 1922,CAMB RIDG E M ASSACHUSETTS. WEDNESDAY DECEMB ER 19, The clangor of the phone violates the relentless roll of rain beating. the roof like drumsticks I sit straight up in bed my heart leaping. in my chest like a startled squirrel as I glance at the illuminated. display to see who it is, What s up There is nothing in my voice when I greet Pete. M arino It can t be good at this hour, M y rescued greyhound Sock presses closer to me and I place. my hand on his head to calm him Switching on a lamp I retrieve a. pad of call sheets and a pen from a drawer as M arino starts in. about a dead body discovered several miles from here at the. M assachusetts Institute of Technology M IT, Out in the mud at one end of the athletic fields what s called.
Briggs Field She was found about thirty minutes ago he says. I m on my way to where she probably disappeared from then. heading to the scene It s being secured until you get there. M arino s big voice is the same as if nothing has happened between. I almost can t believe it, I m not sure why you re calling me He shouldn t but I know. his reason Technically I m not back to work Technically I m. still out sick I sound polite enough and calm just a little hoarse. You d be better off calling Luke or, You re going to want to take care of this one Doc It s going. to be a PR nightmare and you sure as hell don t need another one. He s wasted no time alluding to my weekend in Connecticut. that was all over the news and I m not going to discuss it with him. He s calling me because he can and he ll probe where he wants and. do as he wishes to make sure I know that after a decade of taking. orders from me the roles suddenly are reversed He s in charge I m. not That s the world according to Pete M arino,Whose PR nightmare And PR s not my job I add. A dead body on the M IT campus is everybody s nightmare. I ve got a bad feeling about this I would have gone with you if. you d asked You shouldn t have gone by yourself He s talking. about Connecticut again and I pretend I don t hear it Really you. should have asked me, You don t work for me anymore That s why I didn t ask. It s as much as I m going to say to him,I m sorry about what it must have put you through.
I m sorry about what it put the entire world through I cough. several times and reach for water Do we have an ID I rearrange. pillows behind me Sock s narrow head finding my thigh. Possibly a twenty two year old grad student named Gail. A grad student where,M IT computer engineering Reported missing around. midnight last seen at the Psi Bar, M y niece s favorite hangout The thought disconcerts me The. bar is located near M IT and caters to artists physicists and. computer wizards like Lucy Now and then she and her partner. Janet take me there for Sunday brunch, I m familiar with the place is all I offer this man who has. abandoned me and I know I m better off,If only it felt like it. Apparently Gail Shipton was there late yesterday afternoon. with a girlfriend who claims that at around five thirty Gail s phone. rang She went outside so she could hear better and never came. back You shouldn t have gone to Connecticut alone At least I. could have driven you M arino says and he s not going to ask. how I m doing after what he s caused by walking off the job so he. could start over, He s a cop again He sounds happy The hell with how I feel.
about the way he did it All he wants to know about is. Connecticut It s what everyone wants to know about and I didn t. give a single interview and it s not the sort of thing to talk about I. wish to hell he hadn t brought it up It s like something hideous I d. filed in a back drawer and now it s in front of me again. The friend didn t think it was unusual or reason for concern. that this person she was with went out to talk on the phone and. never came back I m on autopilot able to do my job while I try. not to care about M arino anymore, All I know is when Gail quit answering her phone or texts the. girlfriend got worried something bad happened Already he s on a. first name basis with this missing woman who may be dead. Already they ve bonded He s sunk his hooks into the case and. he s not about to let go, Then when it got to be midnight and still no word she started. trying to find her he says The friend s name is Haley. What else do you know about Haley Swanson and what do. you mean by girlfriend, It was a very preliminary call What he s really saying is he. doesn t know much at all because what Haley Swanson reported. likely wasn t taken very seriously at the time, Does it bother you that she wasn t worried earlier I ask If. Gail was last seen at five thirty some six or seven hours passed. before her girlfriend called the police, You know how the students are around here Drinking they.
go off with someone they don t keep track or notice shit. Was Gail the type to go off with someone, I got a lot of questions to ask if it turns out the way I suspect. It sounds like we don t know a whole hell of a lot Even as I. say it I know I shouldn t, I didn t talk to Haley Swanson very long He s starting to. sound defensive We don t officially take missing person reports. Then how is it you talked to her, First she called nine one one and was told to come to the. department and fill out a report and that s standard You come in. and do it in person He s gotten loud enough that I have to turn. the volume down on my phone Then she calls back a little later. and asks for me by name I talked to her for a few minutes but. didn t take her all that seriously If she was so worried come fill. out the report ASAP We re open twenty four seven, M arino s been with the Cambridge police but a few weeks and. it strikes me as almost unbelievable that a stranger would request. him by name Instantly I m suspicious of Haley Swanson but it. won t do any good to say it M arino s not going to listen if he. thinks I m trying to tell him how to do his job,Did she sound upset I ask.
A lot of people sound upset when they call the police but it. doesn t mean what they re saying is true Ninety nine times out of. a hundred missing students aren t missing These types of calls. aren t exactly uncommon around here,Do we have an address for Gail Shipton. Those really nice condos near the Charles Hotel He gives me.
