PEPPER MACNEIL PULLED THE KEY from the ignition of her Rabbit and twisted in her seat to gather the pile of letters and magazines. Casey Lane, the quiet country way where she was parked, was her favorite stretch of her mail delivery route, for she walked it rather than simply driving from one rural box to the next.
