  1. "Okay," Arachne says. "One good thing about this is that Poverty Gulch and Brackett Park are next to each other."
  2. "Poverty Gulch isn't the only wealthy neighborhood," Arachne says. "There's also Brackett Park in the city and Falcon Bluff and Royal Grove in Lakeview. Both Poverty Gulch and Brackett Park are near University Commons."
  3. Assuming that she's been listening in, Arachne will be in stakeout mode on one site.
  4. "There are between two and three dozen burglaries each day, some are committed during daylight hours," Diana said. "It wouldn't hurt if you patrolled. During the daytime, the burglars are probably wearing regular clothes."
  5. "Afraid not, Avis," Diana replies. "It wasn't Beverly. There was a traffic accident that tied up the freeway that with the fastest route to the city. The other two good routes she could've taken were closed, one is having utility lines replaced while the other had a bus break through the blacktop."
  6. (Detective Lieutenant Diana Grove is their police liaison and head of the Paranormal Affairs Unit.)
  7. "It's a normal day," Bonnie says. "As I understand it, a lot of the infrastructure under the streets is old and some of it is falling apart."
  8. While Ghost Cat's getting hosed down, the gas company crew inspects their lines. By the time she's in Bonnie's SUV, the gas company crew reports that there are no damage to the gas lines.
  9. The bus is now on level ground and the crews get to work inspecting everything.
  10. "Okay, everyone, get clear. Once the bus is out, we have to have the utility companies come in and inspect their lines and repair any damage before we can fill the hole and put new paving down." Once everyone was clear, he said to Ghost Cat, "All yours."
  11. HQ responds that any underground electrical or communications cables would be inside either metal or plastic conduits and that it was probably caused by a slow leak in a sewer line. If it was a water main, since they're under pressure, there would've been a geyser.
  12. "From what we can tell, water eroded the roadbed, causing the pavement to collapse."
  13. "No, we got them out through the emergency exits, which are the windows, closest to the ground. However, the bus is close to the transformer vault for the shopping mall just down the road Natural gas, water, sanitary sewer, steam, and storm sewer pipes are also close to the vault."
  14. The bus is 40-feet long. As you come closer, you see someone waving to you.
  15. As you head back, you notice that traffic is backed up on the main road to San Angelo and that the other two are closed at a certain point. One has been dug up, exposing the maze of piping under the street and has a construction crew working on it. The other has the front of a bus sticking up at a steep angle. The rear of the bus is in a big hole.
  16. "Assuming you're referring to the museum burglary, I could've done it, but I didn't. You can check the record from the transmitter on my left ankle if you don't believe me." She pauses, then says, "I don't know most of the burglars in the area. We're secretive and, usually, don't stay in one area too long, unless we have a good cover identity. Lieutenant Barbara Whitfield could've done it. I should know. I trained her for a series of burglary videos we did for the San Angelo Police Academy, and she was a natural. She admitted later that, besides growing up in a wealthy family, she'd been a gymnast in high school and college. Being from wealth, she probably know a lot about the wealthy and their habits. Let's see, who else, my parents could've, but, last I heard, they were in Las Vegas. Sorry, I can't help you any more. Got to get back to doing chores, like I did growing up on my uncle's horse farm."
  17. "Sure," she replies. "I assume you're talking about sophisticated break-ins, like I once did, and not a break-in done at random by some drug addict punk who doesn't have the sense to wear a mask, let alone gloves."
  18. The lighthouse is a Cape Cod-style house with a two-car garage on the first floor and the light sticking out of the solar cell-covered roof. The section sticking up also has radio antenne, weather instruments, and what could be two foghorns. A concrete driveway leads from one garage door down to the river's edge. A second driveway goes along one side to the street. A woman dressed like a cowgirl is sweeping the driveway.
  19. (True, that's why visiting the lighthouse, by a police department Boston Whaler, would be suggested by a detective in the Burglary Bureau.)
  20. (Beverly's lighthouse is the Roe Island Lighthouse in Suisun Bay, a shallow tidal estuary that is a northeastern extension of the San Francisco Bay. The island lies at the confluence of the Sacramento River and San Joaquin River, forming the entrance to the Sacramento–San Joaquin River Delta, an inverted river delta that is known in the campaign as the Del Oro River Delta. )
  21. (Possibly Detective Lieutenant Barbara Whitfield?)
  22. (Lighthouse keeper Beverly Archer is a cat burglar on parole. She may have a few ideas.)
