Madison deCordova is tackling one of her strangest ‘cases’ yet. A woman contacts In a Pinch, begging for Madison to keep her from killing someone. She hangs up before giving her name, or that of her possible victim.
It could be a prank. Someone looking for attention. A lost soul reaching out for help. Yet the woman’s voice holds true worry, flavored with fear. The call sends chills down Maddy’s spine, especially with the recent hostility against law officers.
In truth, it’s not just law enforcement. It’s anyone wearing a badge, and the anger is escalating. Just last week, a paramedic was attacked. Before that, it was a River County Deputy. And now, a fireman from a neighboring town is shot and killed.
What if the woman is somehow connected to the attacks? How can Madison not help her? It’s a case best suited for her husband, but until she knows if it’s real or a ruse, she won’t add to his problems. The entire police force has enough to worry about without chasing down a wild goose.
Madison always knew that first responders risked their own safety for that of others. But until Brash is hurt in the line of duty, she never understood the utterly staggering weight of the badge.
