Book Excerpt:

Chad’s hand moved inside his jacket. I knew it was on the Glock in his shoulder holster.

“Hey, buddy, I’m lookin’ for Zander. Somebody told me he’s the man to see if you want the best. Can you help me out here?” I strained forward. I could barely hear.

“You not lookin’ to score, man. You be getting’ yo’ ass on gone, do you know what’s good for you.”

“Hey!” Chad threw up a hand. Not the one on the Glock. He kept walking towards Zander. “Chill, man! All I want is a little piece of action.” He was closer. Zander, high-alert mode activated, debated whether to run, hold, or attack. I could feel his indecision vibrating in the air.

“No, man. You lookin’ for me.” I saw the material of Zander’s coat change shape under the street light. It poked out in a straight line. The line of a gun barrel. I heard the retort of the gunfire at the same moment I saw a blackish-red flower bloom on Chad’s shoulder. Almost simultaneously, I heard two more gunshots. Much louder gunshots. Two blackish-red flowers bloomed in Zander’s chest. A look of amazement crossed his face. And then he fell.

I was out of the car and running, Stacy hot behind me, as Chad staggered. He fell forward just as I reached him, the blood pumping furiously out of his shoulder. Arterial blood. Had to be. He looked at me and said, “Twice, baby girl. You always shoot twice. Once to take ‘em down, once to finish it.”

I caught his arms just as he fell, and we went down together. Not because I wasn’t strong enough to hold him up. At that moment, the adrenaline was pumping so furiously I could have held him up had he weighed much more than he did. We went down together because he was passing out from the sudden massive blood loss. And so was I. Without losing a drop.

Cover Artist: Michelle Lee

Book Excerpt:

I peered around the corner of the Tallahassee alley where we’d parked the SUV. Yep, there he was. The skip. Danny Delvecchio, a/k/a Ferret a/k/a Dapper Dandy Dan. At the moment, operating as Father Daniel right in front of the Teen Rescue Center run by St. Benedict’s and soliciting donations with practiced ease. I shoved the wimple completing my nun’s ensemble above my eyebrows. Damn thing kept slipping down.

“One more time, from the top,” Chad said.

“Magic Man! It’s not rocket science! He’s just a sleazy con man parading around as a priest. Which is really low, even for a bail-jumping con man.”

“Sure is. So from the top. You’re going to—”

“I’m going to rush up, grab him and babble about a poor boy doubled over in the alley who’s probably overdosed and come with me now, I need help. That about it?”

“That’s about it.”

“Okay. I’m on it!”

I peered around the corner again. Good a time as any. I hitched my habit up a bit and headed toward him in a sprinting semi-jog.

“Father! Father, I need help—”

Before I could grab his arm, I heard an echo. Not in my voice though.

“Father! Father, I need help!” And a hand, not mine, grabbed Dapper Dandy Dan’s arm from behind.

“Oh! Thank you, sweet Jesus!” The hand dropped Dandy Dan’s arm and grabbed mine. “You’re even better! The Lord provides!”

An older nun hauled me through the door of the Rescue Center, her habit flying out around her legs.

“One of the girls—she’s in labor and I’m all by myself right now, even all our kids are gone this morning! We didn’t know she was pregnant. She’s been hiding it under big sweatshirts. I’ve called for an ambulance but I don’t know if they’ll make it, she’s been in labor for a while, I think, she’s in denial! She refuses to believe she’s having a baby!”

She pulled me through a curtain separating the front room from a back room used as a dormitory. The girl lay on a cot under a sheet she clutched close, refusing to let go. And she was all of fourteen. Maybe.

“Sister Marie! Sister Marie! It’s just a stomachache! You’ve got to let me up, I’m not—” She broke off and writhed in pain. Sister Marie dropped to her knees besides the cot.

“Sandra, you’ve got to listen to me! I’ve called for help but it might not get here in time. You’ve got to let us help you, child. You are having a baby and if you don’t listen to me and open your legs, you can hurt it. Badly. You don’t want that, do you?”

Wisps of gray hair peeked from Sister Marie’s wimple, and a harsh ray of sunlight highlighted every wrinkle on her face. Her hand, visibly work-worn and roughened, smoothed the girl’s hair back from her forehead. Sitting there in a halo of harsh sunlight, face lined with compassion and concern, she was the most beautiful woman I’d ever seen. I felt like a fraud. Until I remembered. I could help. There was no such thing as coincidence. I was here for a reason.

unnamed (1)About the Author:

Gail Roughton is a native of small town Georgia whose Deep South heritage features prominently in much of her work. She’s worked in a law office for close to forty years, during which time she’s raised three children and quite a few attorneys. She’s kept herself more or less sane by writing novels and tossing the completed manuscripts into her closet.

A cross-genre writer, she’s produced books ranging from humor to romance to thriller to horror and is never quite sure herself what to expect when she sits down at the keyboard. Now multi-published by Books We Love, Ltd., her credits include the War-N-Wit, Inc. series, The Color of Seven, Vanished, and Country Justice. Currently, she’s working on Black Turkey Walk, the second in the Country Justice series, as well as the Sisters of Prophecy series, co-written with Jude Pittman.

Another War-N-Wit plot always seems to be brewing on the back burner, too, whether she’s actually trying to brew one or not, and usually boils quicker when she’s trying not to brew one at all.
