This week’s episode features a chapter from Dark Spectrum, Jake Ramsey Book #2, the first book Black Brick is available as a free ebook from most ebook vendors. Here is an excerpt from the show:
THE MORNING CAME QUICKLY. I spent the rest of the night taking a circuitous route back my apartment. I wanted to believe Shannon had been straight with me about what she knew but couldn’t discount the possibility the whole thing had been a setup to get me to trust her again.
I remembered all too well how Shannon had been willing to go along with framing me for Lane Vargo’s murder, Peck’s predecessor as Diggon’s CEO. She may have thought on the surface it was the “test” Beltran presented it to be, but she’d known deep down it was not.
Especially once Vargo had been shot by Thor, Peck’s hidden assassin.
My mind had hummed as I considered the possibilities, making it difficult to pay attention to anybody who might have been following me. Whenever I’d caught myself zoning out, I doubled back. I never saw a sign of a tail. Over the course of the late evening and early morning, I had done it at least five times. My efforts wouldn’t mean much if they’d tasked a satellite technician to keep an eye on me.
I doubted they’d go that far–I wasn’t that important–but I worried about it still the same and was careful to avoid looking up into the sky. I stayed in the city until places of business started opening. I didn’t head home until I’d gone through some stores and one mall. While at the mall, I changed my clothes in a restroom stall and for extra measure put on a ball cap I’d purchased, just to make sure I wasn’t followed from above.
I was exhausted by the time I returned to my apartment. Just as I shut the door, my phone was hit with a bunch of news alerts. Rather than going through them on the small screen, I pulled out my tablet, which had the same alerts.
