"Your ex-wife didn’t love your dog?”
He held her gaze.
“Carolanne didn’t love my job.”
Laura let it go as they got out of the squad.
“You know Roslin, there’s something familiar about you. The mystery woman involved with the commissioner—that was you, wasn’t it? I can’t imagine you as a blonde.”
“You’d be surprised. I was under cover.”
“Thank the gods. Not that I believe there are any, but Adar was a prick. How far under?”
She held his gaze.
Bill let it go as they climbed the stairs of the brownstone. “Let’s hope this case is one colossal mistake and that these two love their daughter.”
Roslin rang the bell.
A tall, handsome young man answered the door. “Can I help you?”
“I’m Detective Adama and this is my partner, Detective Roslin.”
They flashed their badges.
“Karl Agathon?” Laura asked. He nodded. “We’d like to talk to you about the disappearance of your daughter.”
They sat in the formal living room.
“Can I get you anything to drink?” Karl asked.
“No, thank you,” Laura said.
“Helo, she doesn’t have Reggie. She can’t sleep without Reggie.”
A beautiful young woman with dark hair and tears in her dark eyes interrupted them. She held a small stuffed yellow dog.
“Who are these people, Helo?”
“Shhhh,” he soothed. “Athena, this is Detective Adama and Detective Roslin. They’re going to help us find Hera.”
Adama and Roslin traded confused glances.
“Mr. Agathon, we were under the impression that this was a possible parental kidnapping, but if you’re both here…”
“Who is this?” Laura held up the case file photograph labeled Mother.
Husband and wife exchanged nervous glances.
“That’s Sharon,” Athena said. “My twin sister.”
