“She dumped”
James J. Murray, Almost Dead

“ME nodded and focused on the pictures of Dunn and Mason attached to the board. She frowned as she spoke. “There’s really nothing simple about this. Maybe there’s . . . yes, that has to be it. There has to be an implanted chip in both of them and that chip produced the signal to wake them up.” She turned to the detectives with a look of satisfaction. Vince”
