Jack grabbed Mr. Liaberco’s raincoat collar. “WHAT. DID. YOU. DO. WITH. IT.”

Mr. Liaberco pulled back. “If you must know, the lab technician discarded it. After he gave me these results, I told him to toss it right down the drain. Who cares? It was plain old water.”

Jack sagged in relief.

“You know that’s not the reason either of us are really here, Jack.” Mr. Liaberco looked at Nessa and licked his lips as if he’d eaten something tasty. “Jack’s source told me about you and your sister, and why your brother went to jail, Ms. Owens.”
