Night 23


Jim Harrison walked the route through the manufacturing buildings, posting the required notations on the check sheet. His mind wasn’t on his work. He was wondering, as he usually did during the quiet midnight hour, where Scotch Blake had gone and what he was up to. Harrison had contacted Blake’s mother and learned that he hadn’t gone home to her after he got out of prison. The news bolstered his suspicion that Blake was up to his old tricks. Time would tell. He’d hear something if he was correct.

Further south, Blake walked the historic district all day, every day, until the Home and Garden Tour started. He catalogued the hours of operation of every shop and restaurant, and made notes about the location of each barking dog he passed.

He was first in line when the tour started and spent the weekend going through each of the homes, adding five others to his list of targets. He just might settle in Savannah for good.
