No other word described it.
Rayford knew he had much to be thankful for. Neither
Irene—his wife of twenty-one years—nor Amanda—his wife
of fewer than three months—had to suffer this world any
longer. Raymie was in heaven too. Chloe and baby Kenny
That should be enough. Yet the cliché consumed came
to life for Rayford. He stormed out of the safe house in the
middle of a crisp May Monday morning, eschewing a jacket
and glad of it. It wasn’t anyone in the safe house who had
set him off.
Hattie had been her typical self, whining about her immo-
bility while building her strength.
“You don’t think I’ll do it,” she had told him as she raced
through another set of sit-ups. “You way underestimate me.”
“I don’t doubt you’re crazy enough to try.”
“But you wouldn’t fly me over there for any price.”
“Not on your life.”
Rayford stumbled along a path near a row of trees that
separated a dusty field from what was left of the safe house
and the piles of what had once been neighboring homes.
He stopped and scanned the horizon. Anger was one thing.
Stupidity another. There was no sense giving away their posi-
tion just for a moment of fresh air.
He saw nothing and no one, but still he stayed closer to
the trees than to the plain. What a difference a year and a half
made! This whole area, for miles, had once been sprawling
suburbia. Now it was earthquake rubble, abandoned to the
fugitive and the destitute. One Rayford had been for months.
The other he was fast becoming.
The murderous fury threatened to devour him. His ratio-
nal, scientific mind fought his passion. He knew others—yes,
including Hattie—who had as much or more motive. Yet
Rayford pleaded with God to appoint him.
