10 Bodies Lying : Liar liar, pants on fire…
Carlotta Wren is dazed and confused–everything she thought she knew about her life has been a lie. How can she ever trust anyone again? And where does she go from here?
She hopes a business trip out of town will help to clear her head… instead it lands her in the middle of a murder, as the prime suspect! While Carlotta works frantically to prove her innocence, she’s also forced to confront the lies she’s been telling herself. If she manages to get out of this mess, she’ll have to get real about the kind of life she wants, and the person she wants to spend it with.
“So I should just… start talking?”
“Sure.” Then he checked his watch. “And not to rush you, but we have to be finished in forty-five minutes.”
“Oh.” She shifted. “Okay… where should I begin?”
He shrugged, then held his pen to the notebook, as if he were poised to transcribe everything she said. “Why don’t you just tell me what’s bothering you?”
She couldn’t hold back a bitter laugh. “How about everything?”
He made a mark in his notebook. “Can you be more specific?”
“Okay.” She took a deep breath. “When I was a senior in high school, my parents skipped town so my father could avoid going to jail for a white collar crime. My brother Wesley was nine, so I had to raise him—and myself. It was tough… but we managed. Then a few months ago, ten years after he went missing, my father was apprehended.”
“Where?” he asked, scribbling furiously.
“Here in Atlanta. Actually, he came out of hiding to save me from being attacked by a serial killer.”
Dr. Denton looked up. “Seriously?”
She nodded. “Wes and I were moving bodies for the morgue at the time, and it landed me in the middle of some messy situations.”
His gaze flitted over her, head to toe. “You don’t look like someone who moves bodies for a living.”
“It’s a side gig.”
“And how does one become a part-time body mover?”
“Wes got me involved… and I guess Coop kept me involved.”
