Dawn had barely broken when an early-morning jogger had called it in. I hadn’t been sleeping, but—worse—my cell phone blasting had torn me out of Jake’s arms…and he’d been using his best vampire moves on me. Now as Detective Mike Norelli and I surveyed the scene, an evidence technician snapped photos.“Nifty swimsuit,” my partner said of the dead man’s charcoal-striped suit. “Gotta get me one of them.”
