A small taste from “Back Widow” (releasing April 2014)
His breathing became more shallow as she lay her drink on the table in front of him. He couldn’t catch his breath long enough to slow his pounding heart. She could sense his panic as she raised her eyes to look into his.
Her lip curled up ever so slightly as she looked into his glassy stare. She heard him gasp for air. She leaned forward, still fixed on his face. “Is it getting harder to breathe for you, baby?”
The man stared back at her, his eyes wide as saucers as he continued to gasp for air.
“This is what happens when you piss off the wrong people. They send the Black Widow to make it all better.”
He opened his mouth as though he wanted to protest, but she placed her slender, red manicured finger over his lips.
“It will only be worse if you talk. Just listen.” Her curved lips turned to an evil and cynical smile. “In a few more seconds you’ll take your last breath, but before you do,” she took her phone out of her purse. “Smile for the camera.”
