Excerpt

CHAPTER ONE

Jefferson City, Missouri – 1947

Cora Williams focused on her work-hardened hands clasped in front of her and the cinderblock wall on the other side of the room.

“Well now, it can’t be time for you to leave us, is it?” Herbert Grubber, the head prison guard, hiked his belted pants over his massive girth and continued in his harassing tone. “I thought you’d be here at least another month.” His bushy brows plowed together tightly then the left side of his mouth lifted in a lopsided grin. “We sure hate to see you go.”

Cora didn’t say a word or give him the satisfaction of changing the poker-faced expression she’d perfected.

Not with freedom so close.

After several more condescending words, Grubber shoved a fountain pen and the long-anticipated release papers at her with a sour expression. Swallowing hard, she scribbled her name before training her eyes back on the far wall.

Her tormenter creased her copies and slid them across the battered counter. Before she left, Grubber tossed her a sneering wink. “You have 48 hours to check in with the law.” A sadistic chuckle curled his lips. “Come back and see us soon, ya hear?”

Snatching up the legal papers and her meager belongings, she turned to leave the stench and rotting hell in her wake. Only a few yards separated her from hell and the outside.

Two other guards stood behind Grubber snickering like school girls, making the flesh on her arms prickle as if insects crawled over her flesh.

As she headed toward freedom, the young guard, Jim Duffer, tipped his hat politely and pushed the gate wide. “Run, Miss Cora. Get out of here and don’t ever come back.” His soft words were as much a warning as a plea.
