Account - The Unfortunate Ormwood Babysitter - Page 1

I did not expect to be awakened so early in the morning. At least, not by a phone call. The occasional spectral visitor I get now would have been somewhat less surprising. Then again, it is a bit welcome to have such a mundane example of life interrupting life present itself. Regardless, the matter presented is serious in a number of ways. First, the caller claims to represent an arm of the US government and seems to have some knowledge of my nature. Second, the case involves the murder of a young woman and the disappearance of a little girl who seems very much more than meets the eye.
