A Falcon's Bend Series Short Story



Summer 1994



A partially digested body is found in the oxidation ditch at the Falcon's Bend Wastewater Treatment Plant. Was it an accident or is new Falcon's Bend Investigator Pete Shasta facing his first murder?


"Ye have sown much, and bring in little; ye eat but ye have not enough...and he that earneth wages earneth wages to put into a bag with holes."

~from Haggai 1:6, Holy Bible (King James Version)

Anything to avoid having to face his wife the morning after. His back was stiff from another night on the couch. Hiding out in his office all day hadn't done it any good. He'd tried calling Donna in the early afternoon--not even sure himself why, exactly--but he'd been almost relieved when there'd been no answer.
