Science Fiction Fantasy Saturday (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.
Yet another novella was released Friday (available at Amazon).
THE NECROMANCER OF THE AVON - Special Inspector Michael Pedroni finds himself on board a derelict battlecruiser, the Avon, attempting to solve the mystery of a gruesome massacre. The vigilante, Jax Marlin, appears with a clear idea of who has committed the crime, the infamous Necromancer Killer. In an unexpected twist, the inspector and the vigilante form a truce and work together to capture their prey...(I know, shocking, right!)
In this scene, Pedroni and Jax are on board a Marine vessel, discussing the Necromancer and before they declare a truce. Pedroni opens this scene...
“You’d prefer to stew in the ship’s brig until the investigation is over? It could take days—weeks.”
She let out a soft chuckle, her breath nudging his face. “You actually believe you can make me stew…in a brig?”
“I’ve seen the brig—it’s solid and secure. You won’t be able to escape.”
“You have to catch me first.”
“I will catch you.”
She smiled, not quite a dare, but close enough. “So why haven’t you?”
