My contact came through. Cook County Hospital, tonight. Someone舗s stirred up Agatha Hagglethorn. This is a bad one, Harry. 舡 Bob gave me the rundown on Agatha Hagglethorn舗s grisly and tragic death, and her most likely target at the hospital. I glanced down at my bare left wrist, and abruptly felt naked. 舠All right,舡 I said. 舠I舗m on it. 舡 The radio squalled and went silent, and I dashed out the door. Sundown would come in less than twenty minutes, rush hour had been going for a while now, and if I wasn舗t at Cook County by the time it got dark, all kinds of bad things could happen.
Go around to the delivery door and ring the bell. Talk to Father Forthill. 舡 She only stared at me, her mouth open. Tears formed in her eyes. 舠You believe me,舡 she said. 舡 I shrugged, uncomfortable. 舠Maybe. Maybe not. But things have been bad, the past few weeks, and I would rather not have you on my conscience. You舗d better hurry. 舡 I pressed some bills into her hand and said, 舠Take a cab. Saint Mary of the Angels. Father Forthill. 舡 舠Thank you,舡 she said. 舠Oh, God. Thank you, Mr. 舡 She seized my hand in both of hers and pressed a tearstained kiss to my knuckles.
As are you. 舡 I steeled myself to throw, began to bring my arm forward. The spirit looked at me with an expression of lost, lonely confusion. This was the hard part about dealing with really substantial, dangerous ghosts. They were almost human. They appeared to be able to feel emotion, to have some degree of self-awareness. Ghosts aren舗t alive, not really舒they舗re a footprint in stone, a fossilized skeleton. They are shaped like the original, but they aren舗t it. But I舗m a sucker for a lady in distress.
