In his years in law enforcement, Thomas had never seen anything like this before. There was a commotion up ahead, and cars were backed up for miles. As he zoomed past the traffic, he had no idea exactly what scene awaited him on the road that day. But he had a sinking feeling that whatever it was, it must be serious.

His knuckles turned white as he gripped the wheel. The traffic was backing up by the second, and the sharp hooting of horns was growing more insistent. People were losing patience.
