Abstract

SERGEANT CROCKER NEWTON RECOLLECTS THE RETURN OF THANE GOULD TO ENDICOTT, MASSACHUSETTS, IN THE WINTER OF 1977/ That was the winter a nameless December hurricane laid the freighter Etruria lengthwise on the sand at Head of the Meadow, then Thane appeared in early January as though there was some connection, hitchhiking down Route 6. Before I saw who it was I had already pulled the cruiser over to check him out: short on luggage, jailhouse tattoos on the backs of his hands, hair to his shoulders and stiff as peanut brittle, like you could snap it off. And his back showing signs of defeat, stiU lugging the invisible piano is to keep a vision like that moving on down the road: he's probably not in town to visit his dear old mother. Then I saw it was Cousin Thane, only thinner than of a recent attitude adjustment. A cop's inclination chopsticks and fresh from two years' incarceration down there in Santa Marijuana or whatever they caU it. Before I let him off at Aunt Shirley's, he'd told me what a damn fool he was. Gone and gotten in on the deal because he wanted to go into auto
