Dropping her line into Fools Lake, she patiently waited for something to bite.

Hillary was on leave, visiting friends in Arizona. Fly-fishing was a passion of hers from way back.

There was a piercing sound from a cell phone in her rucksack. ‘Damn! I’m sure I turned that off,’ she thought.

Marg, her employer who owned the investigations agency she worked for, had had a narrow escape and needed her help.

Hillary picked up a flight from Phoenix to Anchorage in Alaska and 6 hours later, collected a package from Marg, at “Humpys,” a restaurant in the airport complex.

Marg related her miraculous  escape from the secretive Dickus’s lab that blew up after explosive charges detonated, when she retrieved some documents from a large safe.

  5. Hi John,

    Very interesting reading.

    There is something I’m not clear about.

    So you keep the same characters?
    Is that the required format or is it your novel idea?
