Here’s an excerpt:
I adjusted my glasses. “You spoke to him in the hospital? The police let you?”
He chuckled and there was a mischievous twinkle in his eye. “Oh, I was pretty tricky in my day. I slipped in when no police were around. I’m sure you know that whenever we can interview people without officials standing there, they feel a bit freer to talk. Besides, he didn’t really know anything about the fire. He was just a confused young man.”
I smiled. “Yes, of course. What was his name?”
He opened the notebook briefly and closed it again. “Barton James.”
A deep click sounded in my brain. That name meant something but I couldn’t place it. I struggled to make the connection while Ellis kept talking.
