City Police Commissioner Maurice Jenkins was the first to press close to the body when it began to whisper.
“The hills, the bay, the valley, the tower.  The Bells!  The bells are sounding.  The clarion call is sounding, and He is drawing the threads together.  He’ll climb Jacob’s Ladder and ascend from fire as the Phoenix.  The City will know its master, and He will be the god of this place.  The bells are sounding…”  The cops all straightened.
“Some hacker messing with us,” Marcy said.  Maurice frowned.
“I’d like to speak with the hacker that made this.  Let’s go.”
