Chapter 6  Legal Challenges

--

  Next morning, Jevy drove to the river and parked near the water's edge. The Santa Loura hadn't moved. He was pleased to see that Welly had arrived. Welly wasn't yet eighteen, but claimed he could cook, pilot, guide, clean, and navigate. Jevy knew he was lying.

  "Have you seen Mr. O'Riley?" Jevy asked.

  "The American? No. No sign of him."

  Jevy drove downtown to the hotel to find Nate. The girl at the front desk hadn't seen Mr. O'Riley. She phoned his room, and no one answered. Jevy persuaded her to give him the key.

  The door was locked but unchained, and Jevy entered slowly. The first thing he noticed was the empty bed, then he saw the bottles. One was empty, and the other half-filled. He saw a bare foot, then stepped closer to see Nate, lying between the bed and the wall. Jevy gently kicked his foot, and the leg moved.

  At least he wasn't dead.

第六章     法律之战

第二天上午,杰维驱车赶到河边,桑塔露拉号还没出发,他很高兴地看到威利已经到了。威利还不到十八岁,却声称自己会烹饪能保洁,会开飞机能驾船,还能当向导。杰维知道他在吹牛。

“你见到欧瑞利先生了吗?”杰维问。

“那个美国人吗?没有,没见他露面。”

杰维只好开车去旅馆找尼特。前台的女接待并没有见到欧瑞利先生,打电话到他的房间也没人接。杰维向她要了房门的钥匙。

门是锁着的,但是没有挂防盗链,杰维慢慢走进去,首先映入眼帘的是空空的床铺,然后他又看到了酒瓶,一瓶是空的,另一瓶还剩一半。他看到一只光着的脚,再走近一点就看到了躺在床和墙壁之间的尼特。杰维轻轻踢了踢他的脚,那条腿蠕动了一下。

好吧至少他还没有死。
