About this Book

Print Excerpt


"I'll tell you all the details when you're on board."

"There's no way I can agree to something this mysterious."

Markel stands. "Just give it some thought." He touches my shoulder. "I'll check in with you next week."

"You really are the devil, aren't you?"

"If you believe in the devil."

Which, of course, I don't.
