CHANNILLO
Dark Letters
By Robert Sanborn

Series Description:

It was just a routine call ...

... happens every day, he thought ...

And then he found the trunk ...

There was a fire on the turnpike. One of those little shacks that you always see but hardly notice when you pull into any service area on any highway ... burnt down to its bones.

Detective Al "Buster" Jackson is called to the scene of what was supposed to be a routine fire investigation. And it was ... until he found the trunk.

He bagged it, tagged it, and put it in his cruiser. Evidence now bound for the station. And then the call came in...

"912, you got an emergency, copy?"

"Go ahead, base."

"It's your wife. Fire and EMT are on the scene. Head straight home. Copy?"

...weeks later, the unmarked unit still in his driveway, he opened the hatch on the Ford Explorer and there it was ... the evidence from the fire.

He opened the trunk. Inside sat a notebook. On its cover, a fairy sits on the end of a fingernail moon. The two of them are surrounded by stars. The fairy and the moon are in deep conversation, or so it seems. Strange notebook.

Buster starts to read. Suddenly, the notebook cover seems positively normal compared to its contents. And his understanding of life and reality begin to crumble with every turn of the page ...
