The Author Speaks

Excerpt From 'Guilt by Association'

Former prosecutor's first novel is a murder mystery

The knock on the door jolted him back to reality. He swallowed and struggled for a deep breath, then walked toward the door. He noticed his hands were shaking, and he quickly rubbed them on his thighs to make them stop. He slowly released his breath and willed his face to relax as he opened the door.

"Hey," he said, then held the door open and moved aside to let in his visitor. "What took you so long?"

"Lost track of the time, sorry." The visitor stepped inside quickly.

"You have it all?" the boy asked, wary.

The visitor nodded. The boy smiled and let the door close behind him.
