Read an Excerpt

Chapter One

Oh, man.

Man.

Someone'd ... obliterated Kantrell. Not just killed him, not hurt him. Obliterated.

Boom. Pow. SMOOSH.

Oh, man. Kantrell. Lindy. Marz. Lefter. Pool. Freis. All of them.

Gone.

Quinn ran up a long flight of stairs, heart pounding, the flaking wallpaper fluttering down around him. Okay. Okay. He could cope. He could. Okay. Six out of seven was ... Was ... Was...

Was damned scary when you were number seven.

He could hear the boots of the guards on the floor below, the stairs.

Okay. Okay. Mirror. He needed a mirror. He had an escape mirror set up two blocks over. Just an unbroken mirror. Big enough to step through. Unbroken.

A shadow fell across him as he ran along the hallway, large and wide and belonging to a big man stepping out of the shadows. Green eyes stood out in a square, tanned face, a severe hair cut making the man look stern, mean.

"They here for you?" the man asked, voice deep and rumbling, eyes flicking down the hall toward the stairwell.

Lord and lady help him. He scrambled backwards, hand trying each doorknob. Open one. Just one. Open. Open.

Eventually a door opened and Quinn fell through it, the big man following, carefully pushing the door closed behind them and turning the lock. It was dim in the apartment, a scant bit of light pushing in through the dirty windows. One large finger pressed against his lips, those green eyes coming close. "Shh, or they'll hear you."

Hear him? How could anybody hear anything with his heart pounding so hard? Come on. Come on, Quinn. Think. Think. Kantrell knew you could ... Okay. Big mirror. Just across the room.

One warm, heavyarm dropped around his shoulders and the green-eyed man smiled down at him. "You've got something up your sleeve."

He showed long, thin arms, covered in dust and scratches from running. No. Nothing. They shifted a step closer to the mirror. "Are you going to hurt me?"

"Not today." He was given a wink, the same warm finger that had touched his lips sliding down along one arm. "Are you always so literal?"

"Mostly." He took another step toward the mirror, stopping as the footsteps got closer. "They're coming."
