Tires squealed as Kyle Rieker slid the rented Ford Focus to a stop behind the row of cars parked at the curb. It was still rocking when he lunged free of it and strode toward the chapel from which mourners were leaving. While aware of curious glances tossed his way, his focus was on the entrance.
He paused briefly to let a couple step outside. Then, as he eased inside and across the back, his glance locked on the gleaming maple casket at the front of the chapel. It was adorned with large multi-looped bows of broad white ribbon. Bouquets of white roses and lilies, interspersed with lacy green ferns, spilled over the sides of standing baskets at either end of it. She had loved white in all things.
