  The following day, Stafford met Tip Durban and together they drove to the medical examiner's office inMcLean.

  "The cause of death is obvious. There's no trace of alcohol or drugs," the medical examiner said. "And there was no sign of cancer.Troywas in good health at the time of his death."

  "Did he tell you he had cancer?"DurbanaskedStaffordon the drive back.

  "Yes, several times."

  "Why did he lie?"

  "Who knows? Everybody thought he was dying."

  "Why did he jump?"

  "He was a very lonely old man."

  "It seems like a nasty thick,"Durbansaid. "He promises money to his family, their psychiatrists say that he isn't crazy, then at the last minute he signs a different will. Why did he hate them so much?"

  "They embarrassed him. They fought with him. They never earned an honest dime, and they spent many of his millions.Troynever planned to leave them anything."

  Back at his office,Staffordtalked to members of his team. "You have to find a person who, I suspect, does not want to be found."

  He told them what he knew aboutRachel Lane. There wasn't much. "First, find out about the World Tribes Missions. Who are they? How do they operate? How do they pick their people? Where do they send them? Everything. Find out about her mother, Evelyn Cunningham. She's dead now. Find out all you can."


  第二天,斯坦福和提普·德班一起开车去了麦克利恩的验尸员办公室。

  “死亡原因很明显,没有酒精和药物反应。”验尸员说,“也没有癌症的迹象。托伊死的时候身体非常健康。”

  “他告诉过你自己得了癌症吗?”驾车返回的路上德班问斯坦福。

  “嗯,提了几次。”

  “他为什么要撒谎呢?”

  “谁知道呢,所有人都以为他快死了。”

  “那他为什么要跳楼?”

  “他是个非常孤独的老人。”

  “感觉有点用心险恶啊,”德班说,“他承诺给他的家人财产,然后他们的精神病医生才会说他没疯,可是最后一刻他又签署了一份完全不同的遗嘱,他为什么这么恨他们?”

  “他们一直榨取他的钱财,跟他勾心斗角。他们从没老老实实地挣过一分钱,一直在挥霍他的财产。托伊从来就没打算留给他们任何东西。”

  回到办公室后,斯坦福对他的团队成员说:“你们必须找到一个人,不过我猜这个人根本不想被找到。”

  他告诉了他们自己所知道的关于瑞秋·兰茵为数不多的信息。“首先要查明世界部落传教士,他们是什么人,内部是怎么运转的,他们怎样挑选成员,又派他们去哪里。查明每一件事情。找到瑞秋的母亲艾弗琳·卡宁汉,她现在已经死了。查明所有你们能够获得的信息。”
