The minutes keep ticking. I know, I’ve counted all one
hundred and twenty of them.
They’re trying to rattle me with one of their basic
ploys: always keep your opponent off guard. It’s law
enforcement’s initial interrogation tactic.
Well, technically, the first tactic is to establish a rapport
and roll out the “kill ’em with kindness” act. However, since
federal agents had me in cuffs as soon as my plane landed,
I’m pretty sure they skipped it and went straight for
Their white-washed concept of torture is to keep me
locked in an office for two hours. I want to laugh, but it isn’t
even worth the effort. Two hours is nothing. I’m fully
clothed, and I’m wearing shoes. My hands aren’t bound to
this chair, and I can see the sky right outside the window

The door behind me opens then slams, but I don’t flinch.
Keeping my eyes forward, I ignore the intrusion until FBI

focus on other than the arrogant smirk tugging at the corner
of his mouth.
He slams his palms against his desk and cocks his chin,
the dark skin pulled tight across his jaw. I know his game
right away. Intimidation. He wants me to break first. Good in
theory, but if he’s been debriefed on anything that’s
happened in the last week, he should know better.
I have nothing left to break. A conscience can’t fracture if
it doesn’t exist, and if you bargain with the devil, sometimes
you pay with your soul.
With his tactics failing, Dunning’s demeanor changes,
and he digs his nails into the wood. “You’re part of a Russian
I don’t hear a question in there, so I hold his stare while
brushing my thumb over his nameplate. “Well, that may be
true, Carl, but I also took out one of this country’s most
prolific assassins who, I might add, your agency has failed to
identify, much less apprehend. Shouldn’t that count for
