Death of a Dunwoody Matron (Sheila Travis Series, 5)
From the Book" "Did you finish your hedge?" Sheila asked Yvonne's yard man.
He grinned. "You know how it is with hedges," he said laconically. "It will still be there when I get back."
"I don't even know that you are a gardener."
"Let me do your yard. You'll see."
"I live in an apartment with one small bonsai tree. Anything else I try to grow dies a pitiful death. Sorry."
His expression was hidden by his sunglasses. "A green thumb can be cultivated."
"I've been too busy cultivating a suspicious mind. How long have you worked for Walter?"
He shook his head. "It was Mrs. D. I worked for. Never saw him until yesterday. Used to see the little boy sometimes." He raised his sunglasses and looked at her intently. "He's safe?"
His eyes were very blue, and compelled her to nod.
"That's good." He replaced the glasses. "That's real good. Now, you run along home and don't come back."
"Is that a warning or a threat?"
"Whichever you prefer." Without a word of farewell, he set off up the street.
She watched him go, puzzled and more than a bit annoyed. A strange gardener, gave orders but no name, carried no tools and had no truck. And how had he managed to so imprint their conversation on her brain that she could replay it word for word?
