This week’s episode features a chapter from Blood Games, Jake Ramsey Book #3, the first book Black Brick is available as a free ebook from most ebook vendors. Here is an excerpt from the show:
THE RAIN HAD SUBSIDED to a sprinkle and the thunderstorm had disappeared. I’d lost count of the number of blocks I’d gone, but the rough weather had been working for me, keeping people more interested in where they were going than who they were passing. The change meant it was time to do something about my disguise. I’d been lucky to have made it so far but my window had closed.
The loss of time would hurt but I didn’t see a way around it.
Gritting my teeth, I stopped in a mall bathroom. When I looked in the mirror, I wasn’t surprised to see my disguise had washed away.
Lucky indeed, I thought.
I checked over my shoulder, half expecting a squad of cops to follow me in. Seconds ticked by while nothing happened. I shook my head and tried to force away my paranoia. Unfortunately, it did little to lessen the tension I felt in my chest.
Muttering, I used a paper towel to dry the rainwater from my face, wiping off the last remnants of my disguise. I’d just started on a new one when somebody entered the bathroom. I hid my face and went as calmly as I could into a stall, acting like I’d already been headed in that direction.
Had he recognized me?
I half-expected him to leave without using the facilities. I’d be right behind him if he did.
When he settled into a stall, I suppressed a sound of exasperation. I had hoped he’d be quick and leave me alone again in the bathroom.
