Print Excerpt


"Drinking is what got me in this mess in the first place, and sun is not going to touch my skin and make me look sixty at forty, and -- "

"Okay, have it your way. Be miserable if you want to. Just tell me where you'll be, so my friend can reach you."

"I'll be at Kendrick Park until we get on the boat. I think it's a bird sanctuary, and get this, as if I didn't have enough problems, one of the men on the boat is named Ace."

When Jeremy was silent, Fiona spoke again. "You don't think that's funny?"

"Not particularly. What's wrong with that name?"

She thought about telling him of what she and The Five had come up with about the man, but Jeremy liked The Five as much as he liked Kimberly. "I think it might be a woman thing."

"I'm sure it is. Look, honey..."

"Yes, I know, you need your beauty sleep. Did I tell you that when I didn't claim my suitcase, they put it into an incinerator? After all, they'd already had one bomb scare that day, so they didn't need another one. I am here with the clothes on my back and what's in my pack."

Jeremy yawned. "If I know women, that thing is full of everything you need for a week on a deserted island."

Tightening her lips, Fiona glared at the phone. His chauvinistic comment was one of dismissal, and all his care and concern had been about legal matters. He hadn't offered her a word of sympathy for all that she'd been through. So much for a shoulder to cry on! "At least your photo was in the bag that got burned up," she said, then hung up. But the gesture didn't make her feel any better. She had an hour and a half to get ready to meet Roy Hudson.
