Excerpt

Around six-thirty Hoff headed out in his Wrangler to oversee a road crew clearing trees on 29 South. The situation was more fraught than he expected. There were four trees down within a tenth of a mile.

Hoff hailed one of the men cutting apart a tree with chainsaws. “Hey, Ty. How goes?”

“You can see.” Ty Hodanish, a local artist, taught Impressionist landscape painting out of a small studio at the Prallsville Mill in Stockton. Hoff didn’t know him well, but liked him. “Wind’s picked up a little.” Ty wiped a hand across his broad forehead. “It’s like one falls for every one we cut apart.”

“No road crews from down below? New Hope, Lambertville?”

Ty gave him a look of mild incredulity. “They’ve got their hands full, I think.”

“I guess so. Okay, keep at it, but be careful.”

“We’re good.”

“I’ll check back with you later. Or someone will. Colazzo has deputized Anita St. John, so she might be the one. Don’t work past dark, huh?”

“We won’t.”

Hoff turned to go. “Oh, hey, Ty? Did it look to you as if any of those trees were, you know, cut? Deliberately?”

Ty glanced around, frowning. “I didn’t want to say anything. It just seems too silly, you know?”

“So they did, then.”

“I’m sure it was just some sort of aberration.”

“Yeah. Yeah, I’m sure you’re right.” He drove away without seeing the ’pede slither out of Ty’s denim work shirt. With Hoff gone, Ty and the others dropped their charade of clearing the road and resumed work on the barricade.
