Viviana saw Grant’s shoulders slump, but she wasn’t ready to give up yet. Pamela’s reaction was too strong, too scared. She had to know something so horrible she had never even told her husband—something she wanted to keep a secret from him even thirty years later. What would keep a thirty-year-old crime that fresh? “You know where he is, don’t you, Pamela? He’s not dead, is he? Kent Barrington is alive.”

Tears filled Pamela’s eyes.

“What is she talking about, Pam? I know everyone you know, and we don’t know any Barringtons.”

A tear slid down Pamela’s cheek. “Could I see those photos?” she asked.

Viviana handed her the phone.

Pamela swiped through the family album. “My brother never told me his name. He came to my house after the deed was done. There was nothing I could do. Neil said anyone who knew anything was in danger. He told me to hide, and if he didn’t meet me at the library the next morning he told me to run.” Pamela looked up at her husband and said, “I didn’t come here to escape an abusive ex-boyfriend. I came because if I stayed in Aruba whoever killed Neil was going to kill me, too.”

“Oh, my God,” her husband said. “Why did you lie?”

“I was so scared. I didn’t know what to do or if telling you the truth would get you killed, too. So I lied. You took me in. You made me feel safe. We were happy. I don’t know. I guess I started to believe my lie because the truth was terrifying.”

Her husband continued to hold her, but he was obviously struggling to accept that he didn’t know his wife as well as he’d thought. “Do you know where this Kent Barrington is? If you do, tell them. I don’t know what Neil did, but you need to help set it right.”

Pamela looked down at the phone again. “He has his sister’s eyes and his father’s smile.”

“What are you saying?” her husband demanded, shaking her.

Grant stood absolutely still, letting the scene play out. Viviana held her breath, afraid to do or say anything that would close the door to the truth.

Pamela walked over to a bureau and took an album out. She flipped it open, hugging it to her chest while running her hands over the photos in it. “Neil was paid to kill the baby, but he couldn’t do it, so he brought the baby to me. I wanted him to take it back. All I could think about was how frantic his parents must be. Neil said we couldn’t. He said there was a price on the child’s head. If he didn’t kill it, someone else would. I thought the baby belonged to a member of a gang or the Mafia. When I was on my way to the airport, the taxi driver told me there had been an accident and several people on the island had died. I knew I had to take the baby with me but I didn’t have anywhere to go, so I came to you, Dave.
