David Dean harbored serious doubts about leaving Lydia Larkin's apartment without either contacting the police or calling an ambulance—or maybe a lawyer.
She had no phone, no way of contacting Dusty or Jenn or Darian.
Betsy and I had discussed my contacting After as suggested by Dan Brennan.
But neither seriously considered contacting the law, especially because the law was Acting Sheriff Fitzgerald.
That's why you don't want us contacting her.
