Item description for Angel of Truth by Rosanna Filippello...
Death was nearby, blood everywhere Angelo and OMalley ducked under the crime scene tape and trudged through the garbage-strewn alley. Rats, the size of cats, scurried out of their way, but didnt go far.
The smell told them that death was nearby. Angelo pulled a pair of latex gloves out of her pocket and slid her hands into them. There was blood everywhere. Squatting down to get a better look, she lifted the cardboard that covered the corpses face. His eyes were wide open; the rats had not gotten that far yet.
Well? her partner asked, holding his nose and standing a few paces behind her.
Hes not going to bite you.
OMalley did not reply.
Its definitely Mr. Robbins, she said, poking him in the chest with her pen. His body has been here a little over forty-eight hours, but no more than seventy-two.
Jesus, how could you tell? Its November and cold as a witchs tit out here. That smell means hes been in decomp for a while.
You have a way with words, OMalley.
Do you think his neutering killed him?
She lifted his shirt and looked at his chest. The stab wound to the heart did it. The castration was done post mortem.
Do you dream blood and guts too?
All the time. Keeps me from thinking about you naked, she joked.
Cute. Really cute.
Ignoring him, Angelo pulled a mini recorder from her pocket and pressed the record button. She studied the body. He was on his back, staring into an unknown void. He was bloated from expelled gases and his skin was turning black from the pooling of blood due to gravity.
Bodys gone soft, she said into the recorder. Rigor has come and gone. Lividity pooling in his back suggests he died here. The mutilation was done post mortem. A stab wound to the chest was the most likely cause of death. Well have to confirm it with the medical examiner. Whoever did this was fast. Very fast. Justin was caught off guard. He wasnt the type who kept close friends. However, he knew his killer.
