Can’t wait for this one? Check out FAMILIAR LIGHT (on sale for $1.50!) to get the early scoop on the unsolved murders leading to the LIES! Last week, Holden had to leave Julia at his apartment to chase a lead in her attack. Julia vowed to herself she’d tell Holden the truth when he returned, but someone else got to her first. This snippet is from Holden’s POV when he discovers her missing.
The speed at which panic infiltrated his system might have left him wondering about the depths of his feelings for Julia, had he the ability to think of anything beyond finding her alive and well. The alternative? He wasn’t going there.
Working his way across the room, he glanced back and saw the chain busted from the door through which he’d entered. The sight of it hanging uselessly from the jamb bludgeoned him from within. Uninvited guests were never a good sign, particularly within the realm of a murder investigation—at this point, he didn’t need proof the cases were related; his gut demanded evidence they weren’t.
