Tim Sterling scrambled from the antique car, and waved his arms. Brake lights flashed as the pickup swerved. Jack raced up to the cab of the truck. He yanked the door open and pulled the driver out. The two of them tumbled to the ground. The truck rolled across the drive, up the embankment, crashed into a tree and stalled. The din of the gale-force wind seemed even louder after the engine died.

Nessa reached Jack as he rose to his feet. He yanked his captive upright. The gaunt features were unmistakable. “Mr. Tennies!” She stared at Tenspot’s father.

He glowered at her. “So you got me. Now what?”

Jack said, “Now we tell the sheriff we caught the real vandal.”
