Excerpt from The Kidnapping of Sarah Easton

“And I can add to that brief introduction,” Ian continued. “She’s a modern woman all the way through, gorgeous on the outside, mildly intellectual on the inside, annoyingly self-righteous at times, and with a mean streak waiting somewhere below the surface. The woman of every man’s dreams one day, fine as long as you can hold her, but then let her go, and snap.” Ian raised his hand, as if clenching a knife and stabbing repeatedly. “Honest to the point of recklessness.”

“Self-centered in the extreme,” Tony said immediately.

The men clinked glasses and laughed, but Sarah could almost see a downward cast to Jane’s expression, even behind the mask.
