After a short break (and a little holiday) I'm back on board with the SFFSat snippets.
SFFSat is a place where a bunch of us post snippets from our written works and also shoot the breeze a little. And before I get ahead of myself, thanks and appreciation as always to those who stop by and leave fantastic comments.
This week, I'm posting a snippet from To Catch A Marlin, a more or less finalized WIP due out this October with Ring of Fire Publishing. A futuristic cat and mouse tale involving Special Inspector Pedroni and the vigilante Jax Marlin, who just happens to be a super sexy woman with ninja skills.
Today, we have the very first opening lines to the story...
Special Inspector Michael Pedroni peered up from writing his report to find Chief Inspector Aoki briskly walking towards his desk. The CI looked irritated, which meant something crawled up his aft orifice and laid eggs—and now he was about to hatch them all over Pedroni.
CI Aoki dropped a memory sphere and a flimsy report folder on Pedroni’s desk. “The El Sayed case, it’s yours with an upgrade.”
Pedroni narrowed his eyes. “The kidnapping case—I thought that was Boucher’s.”
“Well the ever-efficient Boucher decided he’d rather have a burst appendix.” Aoki fussed with his tie, a favored habit when something bothered him. “Bulletin on the case, it’s no longer a kidnapping.”
