Or as I like to call it, ‘ding ding, the plot is ringing’.
And I mean that it a literal sense. Anita, after getting only an hour of sleep, is woken up by a phone call by Ronnie. Here’s a pleasant little aside – how much sleep does Anita actually get? She seems to get an hour or two at most. She never eats or drinks. How is she still alive?
Ronnie has news about Mrs Smitz. Remember her? The case hasn’t been brought up properly since we met the plot divergence called Louis. Anyway, Ronnie has pictures of George Smitz with another woman and found out that he went around buying silver bullets right next to her butcher’s shop. Ronnie wants to drive over and confront him right away and probably needs the help of a gun toting maniac. Anita agrees, even though she’s got a head injury, a touch of hypothermia, and only an hour’s sleep over about two days.
Richard then calls, bright as a new penny. There’s another shapeshifter missing – remember that plot line? I mean, it must be hard to, seeing as it’s squeezed in-between all the JC and Richard BS – Jason, the guy who crawled all over Anita back in chapter 12. Thirty chapters ago. Anita tells Richard about believing that George killed Peggy Smitz and Richard says that the werewolves will deal with it. Yeah, I don’t like the sound of that. If he killed her, hand him into the police. Don’t let this George guy get ripped apart by werewolves.
Anita asks for shapeshifters to help them threaten George into confessing. Why not let the police do their job and catch him based on evidence? Although that’s probably asking too much of the police in this universe.
There are ten more chapters of this. Maybe at some point Anita will accidentally stumble into the missing werewolves and then accidentally onto Richard’s penis. I’m not asking for competence, just for her to give a shit about her life.
