A recording of a lost woman’s voice sends Holland Taylor on a wild hunt
The woman’s words send an icy chill through St. Paul private investigator
Holland Taylor: “If you are listening to this now,” she says, “it is because I
am dead.” Speaking calmly, Alison Emerton explains that if she is
missing, it is because Raymond Fleck killed her. Fleck, a convicted rapist,
lost his job at a humane kennel after Alison accused him of sexual
harassment and stalking. The threats began soon after, prompting Alison
to buy a gun and record the tape. She vanished soon after, leaving behind
her wallet, coat, and boots, on a night when twenty-three inches of snow
fell on Minneapolis.
Seven months later, her lawyer hires Taylor to find the missing woman.
As Taylor digs into Alison’s past, he learns that Raymond Fleck was not
the only person who wanted her dead.
