A Beauty Uncovered(59)

 Sam wished she could hear the other half of this conversation. She could only put a reassuring hand on his arm and wait for the call to end.

 “I’m not blaming him. I…I had just hoped we had that problem dealt with last year.”

 She could hear Xander’s muffled voice on the phone but couldn’t make out the words.

 “We’ll be there in a couple hours. We were about to leave when you called. Okay. I’ll see you shortly.”

 “For now,” Brody said. “Xander says that the local news has reported the discovery of human remains at the site of a new resort being built. On the land my parents used to own.”

 Sam let his words sink in. “Is it…him?”
