"Marvelic is down here on special assignment, looking into the trouble," Valetta continued as if no reference had been made to his mental status. "I'd like you to help him."
"Trouble?" she mused. "An odd way of describing women being murdered then dumped along I-88 like last week's trash."
"Now, Annie." Valetta's patent sigh made Ronen cringe.
Offering the man a glacial stare, she said, "I'll ignore that patronizing response, Major, because I know you would never deliberately piss me off."
"You're right on that account," Valetta muttered.
"And I'm sure, had you seen the condition of the bodies as I did, you would agree with my professional opinion that it was a blessing none of the women survived."
"I would," he said.
Ronen felt her cold gaze scan his body from forehead to shoes. "Special assignment, Marvelic? Guess you picked the right butts after all."
From her, the comment stung. "The less people who know why I was assigned to this area the better."
"That your way of telling me to keep my lip zipped?"
