Psychic Consultant

Dorothy pulled her coat collar over her neck and shivered.
Why are they taking so long?
The body of Jeffrey MacDonald, missing for ten days, lay in the fox lair as she predicted.
She pointed into the thicket. ‘You can see his feet.’ She covered her nose with her scarf.
Dorothy was a police Psychic Consultant, who had found the burial locations of fifteen murdered victims.
‘Another Lawyer?’ said the Chief. ‘How many more before we stop this serial killer.’
‘There will be one more,’ said Dorothy.
Her husband, John, had suspected the killer’s name, and motive.
He was next.

  3. Before I read the last line, I felt sorry for her (for having the burden of seeing future murders take place). What an unexpected twist! Your tale goes so well with the photo prompt.

  5. Clever twist at the end, I was hooked right from the beginning. I’ve never trusted consultants. Think she’s flinty hearted and will get away with her crimes.
