The police wagon stopped in front of the gateway to the Stonegroves estate. The night was clear and the distant lights of the mansion glittered between the still leaves of the trees. Beyond the gate, the gravel drive stretched away, pale under the starlight until the darkness under the trees swallowed it. Unlike when Raker had visited earlier that day, the wrought-iron gates were shut.
“Guess no one is going to open the gate for us,” said Sheriff Engle. He sat with his shotgun across his knees, his bulk wedged between Raker and the right-hand door. The inside of the wagon smelled of motor oil and nervous men pressed together. The other wagon would be behind them, half a dozen in each, all with shotguns and enough ammunition to fight a war. Raker hoped it would not be needed, but if it was, that it would be enough.
A man in the uniform of a footman stepped out of the small door next to the main gates. Raker felt the sheriff stiffen next to him, his hand going to the trigger of the side-by-side. The footman walked up to the front of the wagon, a puzzled smile on his face. He wore a long-tailed coat in black, dark pants, and black shoes polished to a mirror finish. Silver buttons down the front of his grey waistcoat reflected the glare of the headlights. His eyes looked a little red, and he had the slightly bleary look of someone just woken from an uncomfortable sleep.
