From THE RIGHT SIDE. (And below, the writer with fellow mystery panelists yesterday at the Boston Book Festival.)

He gazed at her in the new off-center way people used on her now. “How about we begin by you telling me why you’re here? Can I get you water or something? Coffee?”

“Why I’m here?”

“Your understanding of why you’re here.”

She shrugged. “I was sent,” she said. “Referred.”

“Right, of course, but … but in a larger sense, LeAnne.”

“A larger sense? Isn’t it part of the protocol?”

Dr. Machado made a note on a desk pad. It looked like one of those prescription pads. She was on Paxil, Prednisone, penicillin and Percocet, and those weren’t even all of the Ps.

“Right again,” said Dr. Machado. “But what is it you’d like to accomplish? That’s what I’m getting at. If we know your goals we can help you reach them.”

She nodded. “Coffee. With milk and lots of sugar.”

Dr. Machado blinked. He rose and went to a Mr. Coffee in the corner.

“At least two packets. Three’s better.”
