An der Straße warteten schon zwei Rettungswagen, deren Hecktüren offen standen, und auf den Fahrzeugdächern rotierte Blaulicht. Wir hielten an. Mac schaute sich um, und sein Blick blieb am Fenster seines früheren Kinderzimmers hängen. Es lag gleich über der Garage. Ein Polizist in Uniform, der uns entdeckt hatte, kam mit gereizter Miene auf uns zugeeilt. Anscheinend hielt er uns für Gaffer. » �Ich rede mit ihm», sagte ich zu Mac. �Nein. » Ich fuhr los. Im Rückspiegel sah ich den Polizisten, der am Zaun stand und immer kleiner wurde.
Mac hatte sich damals gegen seinen Vater gewehrt, der ihn zum Studium drängte, weil er nicht wollte, dass sein Sohn im Eisenwarengeschäft der Familie endete. Mac hatte schließlich eingesehen, dass sein Vater recht hatte, und nachgegeben. Die Tätowierung hingegen war geblieben. Mac hatte einmal gewitzelt, wenigstens müsse er niemandem sein Leben erklären, sondern nur das Hemd hochziehen – das Tattoo und die Narben würden seine Geschichte schon erzählen. Macs eine Wange, einschließlich des Grübchens im Kinn, war noch voller Rasierschaum, die andere schon frisch rasiert.
Ich werde Pawtusky anrufen», sagte Mac. » Dann legte er auf. », fragte ich. �Ja, aber für den Tag des Mordes hat er ein Alibi. Er war mit einer Frau auf ihrem Segelboot. Im Bootshafen von Manhattan, oben an der Neunundsiebzigsten Straße. » �Wie auch? Nicht einmal Danny erinnert sich an ihren Namen. » Wir tauschten einen fassungslosen Blick. Aber wenn man Danny kannte, klang das plötzlich gar nicht mehr so unglaublich. » Mac nahm das Telefon mit hinaus in den Flur. Ich hörte ihn rascheln. Vermutlich suchte er in seiner Anzugjacke nach Pawtuskys Karte.
