Chapter 4—Dan: She’s not Sophie

Chapter 4 March 16, 1:30 p.m. Dan: SHE’S NOT SOPHIE “She’s certainly not Sophie.” One glance at Rex’s big black and tan face and I can tell he doesn’t care. He looks up from the rug at the front door with his world-weary gaze. He’s probably still trying to figure out why I’m here, why…
