Good News (Salvage Series)

Donna sat down with their drinks.

‘Terrible day at work. Please give me some good news.’

The detective looked at her with an expression she couldn’t read.

‘Sure.’

He muttered something else she couldn’t make out.

‘I’ve got nothing. Your husband hasn’t left the house or talked to anyone on the phone. If he’s having an affair, it’s with an imaginary woman.’

Donna shook her head.

‘But that woman saved his life.’

‘They’re colleagues. I suspect colleagues do that for each other.’

‘So that’s it?’

‘That’s it. Good news – your marriage is fine.’

He didn’t sound like he meant it.
