The Water Slayer: A Jill Hunter Short #5

When Chief Bob Sanderson calls Jill Hunter and asks for her help with a case, she refuses. She doesn’t want to ever get involved with one of his cases again. But then he tells her that her best friend and ex-partner Jan has been abducted.

The case has Jill stumped. There is no evidence and no one seems to have seen or heard anything. It feels as though the perpetrator is a ghost.

Jill finally gets the break she needs, but all is not as it seems. Will she crack the case in time to save Jan?

One Last Thing

The Water Slayer: A Jill Hunter Short #5

I SAT DRINKING MY THIRD cup of coffee of the morning when my cell phone buzzed beside me. Smiling, I scooped it up expecting to see Rory’s name on the screen.

Instead, it was a number I didn’t recognize. I debated ignoring it, but there was something about a ringing cell phone that I just couldn’t ignore.

Jill Hunter, I said into the cell phone.

Jill. It’s me. That wasn’t overly helpful. I vaguely recognized the voice, but that was all. I couldn’t put a face to it and certainly not a name. I paused hoping the voice would give me some clarification. It didn’t.

This might sound strange, but can we meet up? I think I need your help.

I racked my brain trying to place the voice. It was no good. I was going to have to ask. Something I hated doing. It seemed disrespectful somehow to not know who someone was when they obviously thought I knew them well enough that I would know them from it’s me.

So he thought I was being sarcastic, pretending I had forgotten who he was. I kicked myself. Much as I disliked the man, I should have still recognized his voice. I’d worked under him for long enough before I left the force to go freelance.

So, just to clarify – you need my help with something?

He thought I was being sarcastic anyway. I might as well play with him a little I decided.

Yes. I would like you to come in as a consultant on a case.

Come on now Bob, you know that’s not going to happen. I did it once, and that was enough. It was more a favor for Jan than anything.

Well think of this as a favor to Jan.

If Jan wanted a favor, she’d ask. How come you’re doing your own dirty work anyway? Why didn’t you have Jan call me?

Because I couldn’t. That’s why I need your help. Jill, they’ve got Jan.

Who’s got Jan? I didn’t like where this was going at all.

Whichever psycho we need to catch.

I’ll be there in ten minutes, I said cutting off the call and jumping up. I grabbed my car keys and raced out the door. Part of me would be raging if I got
