Micro Excerpt #3 – Chapter 2

Lordy, how he wanted to kiss her. He could give her such a life—a life built on love and respect, not one endured in fear and regret. But she wasn’t his, nor could she be, even if they managed to get out of this alive. He was a lawman sworn to protect and deliver a witness in possession of incriminating evidence into J. Edgar Hoover’s keeping. His personal wants and wishes had no place in this situation.

Clamping the lid down on his feelings, Hagen asked, “What’s the earliest Rocchelli will know his ledgers are gone?”

“Sunday afternoon if he sticks to his routine.”

“Three days.” Hagen worked that around in his head. “It might go easier on you if he knew before that. Use them to bargain with.”

“You want me to tell him?”

“If you can work it to your advantage. He respects ambition, and he understands negotiation from a position of power.”

“He does, but he also has a temper that turns him into a raving madman.”

“I know. I’ve seen it first hand…”

Until next time,
Kaye Spencer
