By the time she got back to her desk, Nicole was waiting and Maggie's heart sank. "Hello, you," she said, trying to remain her normal happy self.

Nicole's attitude was clearly the opposite. "I need you to do a project for me."

"I'm going to send you a link to some spreadsheets. I want you to check all the figures and make sure they're right."

"Will do."

Nicole's expression was even more intense when she said, "Set all your other work aside, this is important."

"If I could, I would, but I just can't, Jackie. I've tried every online trick we have. There is no phone or address listing for Adelaide Bertrand, no A. Bertrand, and not even an AWOL Bertrand."

"She's not in any of the hospitals either," said Michael.

"Keep looking," said Jackie. The evening sun was positioned just right to cast its bright light through the windows, so she got up to close the blinds in the dining room.
