A FILE FOLDER drops to the desk in front of me. “You’ve got mail, bitch.”
I lower my mug of steaming coffee from my mouth, my eyes flicking up from
Temperance “Temper” Darling—swear to God that’s her name—my business
partner and best friend, stands on the other side of my desk, a coy smile on her
Temper drops into the seat across from me.
I kick my ankles off my desk, reaching across it to drag the file closer to me.
She nods to the folder. “This one’s easy money, girl.”
They’re all easy money, and she knows that.
Her eyes drift around my cupboard-sized office, the twin of hers.
“How much is the client offering?” I ask, propping my feet up once more on
the edge of my desk.
“Twenty grand for a single meeting with the target—and she already knows
when and where you’re to intercept the target.”
I whistle. Easy money indeed.
“Rendezvous time with the target?” I ask.
“Eight p.m. tonight at Flamencos. It’s a fancy-ass restaurant, FYI, so—” her
gaze drops to my scuffed up boots, “you can’t wear that.”
I roll my eyes.
“Oh, and he’ll be there with friends.”
And here I was looking forward to getting home relatively early.
“Do you know what the client wants?” I ask.
“The client believes her uncle, our target, is abusing his guardianship of his
mother, her grandmother. The two are going to court over the issue; she wants to
save some legal bills and get a confession straight from the horse’s mouth.”
Already, a familiar exhilaration has my skin beginning to glow. This is the
chance to potentially help an old lady out and punish the worst kind of criminal
—one who preys on his own family.
Temper notices my glowing skin, her gaze transfixed. She reaches out before
she remembers herself. Not even she is immune to my glamour.
She shakes her head. “Girl, you are a twisted motherfucker.”
That is God’s honest truth.
“Takes one to know one.”
She snorts. “You can call me the Wicked Witch of the West.”
But Temper’s not a witch. She’s something far more powerful.
She checks her phone. “Shit,” she says, “I’d love to stay and chat, but my
perp’s going to be at Luca’s Deli in less than an hour, and with L.A. lunch hour
traffic … I really don’t want to be forced to part the 405 like the Red Sea. Shit
like that looks suspicious.” She stands, shoving her phone to her pocket.
“When’s Eli getting back?”
