Six Sentence Sunday 01/30



Today my six is from my woman-in-jeopardy story,
NOT WITHOUT RISK, available now from

The Wild Rose Press
.


The first forty-eight hours of any investigation are critical. After those first crucial days, trails tend to go cold. Once cold, dead isn’t far off.

One hundred and two hours after Detective St. John was gunned down in his hotel bed, Justin sat on a case colder than Becky O’Riley the night he tried to go a little too far in the backseat of her daddy’s ‘79 Chevy. The first forty-eight hours had been and gone long ago. Were he to get them back, he was less than certain they would be any further enlightened about what brought a Boston narcotics officer three thousand miles to his death.


Don't miss out on more Six Sentence Sunday fun.
