In San Francisco the medical examiners were all doctors. This ME would take their victim the distance, doing the autopsy and toxicology. ’ ‘I can tell you tomorrow. ’ After CSI had vacuumed and gone, the photographer finished, and the victim was in the thin white bag that the ME had put his seal on, Raveneau and la Rosa spent another forty minutes in the building before driving back to the Hall of Justice. They rode the elevator up and were quiet for the moment. They ate the egg croissants they picked up on the drive back and made coffee, and went downstairs to the morgue and rolled her prints, putting on latex gloves and inking her fingers with the ME looking over them.

They didn’t find anything in Heilbron’s house, but his van looked promising. The crime lab would go through it on Monday. La Rosa wrote out a receipt for the address book and computer they bagged to take with them. She left the receipt in the kitchen on an ancient Formica counter trimmed in chrome. On the ride back she seemed frustrated. Raveneau pulled in behind her car outside the Hall of Injustice, as his defense lawyer friends were so fond of saying.

When the sandwiches were ready they ate, and Raveneau realized what was causing her nervousness after they were sitting near each other on the couch and the sandwich plates were back in the kitchen.
