Book 1: Prologue

Prologue




            He had been watching her for several days now.  She stayed later, after sending her co-workers home, to finish cleaning up.  The only thing that made him nervous about their plan was his proximity to the police station.  Cops had been coming in and out of the building all day.  Should anything go wrong, he had the cover of darkness to help him.
            The light in the room where she was working turned off.  He only had a few more minutes to wait now.  She always did a final walk-through of the building before leaving.  She walked around the rooms completely unaware of the danger she was in.  She really should learn to walk out a different door every night.  However, she walked out the same door after closing.  For him, her routine was a good thing.
            The hall light turned off and he glanced at the stairs inside as he moved into position.  It was only a matter of seconds before she came out the door.  He readied his chloroform doused gag.  The door opened and he quickly gagged her holding a handkerchief over her nose and mouth.   He glanced at the stairs again and nodded his signal towards the corner.  She tried to struggle but he quickly overpowered her and she was soon unconscious.  He tossed her over his shoulder, ran to his truck, threw her into the back, tied her hands and legs, and shut the door.  He was smiling as he ran to the driver’s door.  He started his engine and drove away never noticing that the door she came out of was ever so slightly ajar.
