About this Book

Print Excerpt


He tried to concentrate, but the missing teeth bothered him. Byrne hadn’t thought to mention it. But if Mabel Morgan had painted her face, why hadn’t she put in her teeth? Surely that would come first. Stratton had his own teeth, and he’d never tried applying lipstick, but it had to be easier with them than without them. He tried to shrug the problem away, but it kept coming back. On the way home, he made a mental note to ask his wife if she remembered Mabel Morgan. Women were better at things like that.
