Pocketing them, he got out of the car and walked around to the passenger side. He opened the door and reached over Mallory’s still form to unfasten her seat belt. “Come on, Mal,” he said softly. “We need to get you inside, get you cleaned up.” It didn’t take an EMT to tell she was in shock, and h...

Leaning on the inside of my hotel room door, I buried my palm on my chest and hyperventilated. Holy shit holy shit holy shit holy shit. Drezden had kissed me. Kissed me. Holy fucking shit. Reaching up, I dragged my fingers over my lips. His taste remained; cinnamon and tobacco. I should have hate...

I give out my presents and all I get are mumbles from Da, a kiss from Granny and a pat on the head from Ma. There are no hugs or excitement from anyone except me. I get a bike with streamers. It’s a red Chopper. I could faint like a girl. I get an Etch A Sketch, a car that moves with batteries, a...

I sucked on a beer to get my mind off of it, with little success. Beer was one of the few things worth anything in this shithole planet, and that was only if you added meat byproducts to the grain-piss.

The space was filled with a few wood benches. Plain, utilitarian, like the rest of the facility. But it had a washroom where Fuyuko could lock the door, splash some water on her face, and have a moment to breath without the eyes of everyone else on her.     It wasn’t a safe pl...

Then again, maybe he was afraid that he’d accidentally let something slip. Something even bigger than his own mysterious connection to Sebastian St. James.

I think he’s going for conservative church boy, but his slacks are tailored perfectly to his muscular quads, and his metal plaque brown belt and expensive leather shoes make him seem way too fashionable to fool me.

Putting first things first, I untied a box of clothes and rummaged around until I found, not candy, but a sleek, cream-colored radio Henry had given me, a display item from his Western Auto. My old Philco had always sat in my kitchen, close to the stove. Too close. First thing I asked about after...

They are more stylish than the clothes most girls I know wear, but compared to Jenny and Aunt Maisie I feel really dull and unimaginative. Black stuff doesn’t seem to work outside the city.     I said this to Aunt Maisie just now at breakfast because she doesn’t judge me. My m...

James sounded calm, but the mathematical symbol between his brows didn’t lie. “No, never. I don’t think I can, you know?” “I don’t know. Natalie didn’t like it, when we were first together, but she didn’t try to convince me she couldn’t do it. You know yourself how good she is when she does it no...

But he did, and in the dark of the night loneliness took hold of me, like an incubus. Furious and rough was the onslaught of unchaste hands: this is the way a slave ravishes his master’s wife, a soldier rapes a schoolgirl. —I’ll tell my husband! —You’re lying. —I’ll call to him right now! —You’re...

He was back on the force. Margrethe’s disappearance was now his case. And he had a murder to investigate. He couldn’t take it all in. He glanced down at the piece of paper he held in his hand. He needed to call this guy—the commander of the North Island Division—and find out just what the hell wa...
