To begin with, although she seems outwardly very feminine, I’ve never met a woman who was more masculine inside. She was hard, ambitious in the most self-serving way, and her only weakness seemed to be for model-handsome men a few years younger than she was. So I’m quite sure she didn’t get into Homicide using sex. She got into Homicide because she’s Cuban, plays politics, and knows how to kiss ass. That combination is far better than sex in Miami. LaGuerta is very very good at kissing ass, a world-class ass kisser.
And so the department began to gear up for a long spell of defensive maneuvering, knowing exactly what kind of heartrending twaddle would be coming from the brave and fearless foot soldiers of the ﬁfth estate. Deb had stayed at the scene until the captain began to worry about authorizing too much overtime, and then she’d been sent home. She started calling me at two in the afternoon to hear what I’d discovered, which was very little. They’d found no traces of anything at the motel. There were so many tire tracks in the parking lot that none were distinct.
The one big clue of the day was the left leg. As Angel had noticed, the right leg had been sectioned into several neat DARKLY DREAMING DEXTER 37 pieces, cut at the hip, knee, and ankle. But the left leg was not. It was a mere two sections, neatly wrapped. Aha, said Detective LaGuerta, lady genius. Somebody had interrupted the killer, surprised him, startled him so he did not ﬁnish the cut. He panicked when he was seen. And she directed all her effort at ﬁnding that witness. There was one small problem with LaGuerta’s theory of interruption.
