A Prequel Short Story (Dangerous Secrets Book 1)
BY RM ALEXANDER
Failure isn’t an option …
Ken Capewell’s witness is murdered in front of him, leaving him to want more than just to arrest criminals and walk away. A career change to the Witness Security Program gives the opportunity to help people who made bad decisions. But will high expectations lead to happiness or is death lurking around the corner? Never isn’t as far as it seems in this action-packed prequel to the Dangerous Secrets series.
Rush hour. Why did it have to be rush hour?
Ken Shepherd groaned as he darted and zagged through the Denver traffic, horn blaring as he screeched by passing cars. Nearby drivers swerved in a panic as he tore past, but they didn’t have a reason to be afraid. Specialized training taught him how to drive, and how to stay cool under pressure.
He zipped in between a gray sedan and navy van. No problem with the driving although he felt anything but cool. Instead, perspiration beaded his forehead as Ken checked the time. It’d been ten minutes since the call came through, and every passing second could be the difference between life and death for the witness.
How things got so out of control… Local patrol had been assigned to keep Nate Dunnican safe. If he died, someone would have to answer for the failure.
Ken’s eyes narrowed, questions playing over in his mind. Why he got the call was a mystery, and how Nate got the private number a bigger one. Ken wasn’t the man’s attorney or his protector. As an FBI agent, Ken’s job had been arresting Nate, bringing him in to face the charges. From there, Nate’s case had been turned over to other agents who arranged for him to rat on his organized crime buddies. So why would he come back to Ken?
Ken’s jaw set in a cold, hard line. It didn’t matter. The call didn’t bother him nearly as much as the fear in Nate’s voice.
“I’m going to die,” he had said, “I’ll die if you don’t come here now.”
