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:
SWEAT TRICKLED DOWN THE side of my head and the small of my back. A sense of horror settled onto me like a net. I held in my hand the smoking gun. This paper linked Margaret to Reed.
Given what I knew of the man, this couldn’t be a coincidence. I pulled out my phone and took pictures of the letter and everything else accompanying it. I had no idea what might prove useful so it seemed best to make sure to have a copy of everything. My hand trembled with fury, so I leaned up against the wall to keep it from shaking as I took the pictures.
It was one thing to have a theory. It was quite another to have evidence. This was how Reed had sifted out who he was going to kidnap. He brought them to his company under the pretense of an internship.
Regret flowed through me that I hadn’t shot Reed when I’d had him in my sights. People who played god with other people’s lives deserved nothing less. Of course, if I had, I might not have come down this path looking for missing children.
After taking the pictures, I spent a few minutes on the documentation. A packet of orientation information accompanied the letter. I scanned it but didn’t find anything useful.
I reread the acceptance letter. Margaret was skilled with the computer as well. The internship was with the software development department. The letter was from a man named Ronald Essler.
I read the name again.
