Night 39

Detective Grant’s stakeout on the next night was as quiet as the first. With no burglaries for almost a month, his task force was losing steam. And the Chief had denied his request for overtime for any additional stakeouts.

Jim Harrison spent the next three weeks going door-to-door through every budget motel, short-term rental agency, and car leasing company he could find, asking if anyone recognized the man in the photos he presented. Other than his early success, no one remembered seeing Blake. It appeared they’d hit a brick wall.

Harrison didn’t have long to fret about it, however. The call came in at the start of his fourth week on the job. A donor had been found and his grandson had been cleared for a life-saving heart-lung transplant. He needed to leave immediately if he wanted to be at the hospital during the surgery. Blake would have to wait. Harrison was needed at home.
