"This is Karen Breucher. I had a message to call you. If this is about the arrangements for the next Scorpio--"

"No, she's out of town. This is Karen Breucher." Karen swallowed hard. It can't be . . . it has to be-- "Is this Paul Darrow?"

"Almost. Avon."

The room wavered slightly. "Avon. Avon. Omigod. This isn't a joke, is it? Um, what are you doing in Schaumburg?"
