Frank refused to open the box. “I don’t recognize the return address. It’s not from our usual sources.”
Henry took a close look. “The package doesn’t look suspicious—no powder residue on the outside.”
“I’m not worried about Anthrax.” Frank’s voice trailed away. “But it’s suspicious. Who would send it? This department’s address isn’t public.”
Henry had been a security guard for thirty years, got his first promotion after only three months because he had sensed a problem—a broken bracelet on the floor. Anyone could have dropped it, but Henry had a hunch. He nosed along the wall and came to a storage closet. Nothing unusual there either, but Henry heard something. A muffled breath. He didn’t take time to call for backup; he didn’t want to get laughed out of a job. He used the passkey. Inside the closet found a rapist with a knife to a young woman’s throat. Surprised him as much as the pervert.
