Title: Some Other Child
Author: Sharon Buchbinder
Genre: Romantic Suspense
Between the responsibility for the care of her injured mother and straightening out her muddled finances, public health researcher Sarah Wright hasn't a minute to herself, much less time to repair a fractured romance.
After a much loved aunt goes missing, Sarah is convinced it's a kidnapping but the police refuse to investigate.
Former fiancé Dan flies to Sarah's side to help—and it looks like things might come back together for the two of them—until Sarah is arrested for her aunt's murder.
As evidence stacks up against her, Sarah must find the real culprits as well as unravel decades old family secrets along the way.
Officer Pollack asked, “Can you explain how a finger got into your freezer?”
Was she still asleep, just having a vivid nightmare? “A what?”
“A human finger. A pinky, to be exact, cut off just above the knuckle was found wrapped in aluminum foil in your freezer, along with a wedding band. The ring is inscribed ‘To Ida, Love Jack’,” Officer Pollack said, his face red and contorted with anger.
The room began to spin and her arms and legs felt like strands of wire shaking under the weight of a thousand angry birds. “No, no, no. That can’t be.”
“You missed a piece,” Pollack shouted. “Where’s the rest of the body? Did you have help?”
She snapped her head up and shouted at the officers. “We have to find Betty.”
“What’s Betty’s last name?”
She felt like vomiting. “I don’t know.”
“You have the right to remain silent,” he said.
“I don’t understand. What’s going on?”
“Anything you say can be used against you in a court of law,” Officer Pollack said. “You have the right to have an attorney present now and during any future questioning.”
“Why won’t you answer me?” Her breath came in short gasps, as if she was trying to breathe through a wet washcloth.
“If you cannot afford an attorney, one will be appointed for you, free of charge, if you wish.”
“Answer me, damn it! What’s going on?”
“Sarah Wright, you are under arrest for the murder of Ida Mae Katz.”
