SOMEWHERE IN PHILADELPHIA
Taking pictures of a couple through the window of a trashy motel wasn’t
Truly Langford-Bardot’s idea of fun. Problem was, given recent income
opportunities, it appeared to be her new job. How she’d gone from
celebrated photographer to Mrs. Reeser’s only chance of landing a sevenfigure divorce settlement wasn’t a mystery. She’d put herself here, slouched
in the bucket seat of her ’71 Barracuda, telephoto lens pointed at the lilywhite ass of a man who should know better.
Or at least possessed enough gray matter to close the blinds.
Stupid. Also… gross.
Lifting the travel mug perched between her knees, she washed the bad
taste out of her mouth, then framed another shot. Her camera shutter fired.
The rapid clicking erupted through her open window to drift undisturbed
down the sidewalk. Cracked concrete. Chilly autumn air. Just another late
night in an about-to-slide-over-the-edge-into-poverty neighborhood.
Shifting forward, she tilted her Canon for a better angle. She checked the
images on the digital screen and…
There it was — the money shot.
Double, extra disgusting.
She hated the cheater assignments. Freelancing for workers’ comp on
insurance fraud cases was so much better. Taking those pictures didn’t
involve sex with prostitutes. It consisted of snapping photos of a guy
claiming to have suffered a debilitating back injury at work, but didn’t have
any problem climbing a ladder to clean out rain gutters at home.
Again, stupid. Also, thankfully, a lot less gross.
Slouched in her seat, she thumbed the toggle on her camera, flipping
rapid-fire through the images on screen. No need to stay any longer. The
shots she’d gotten worked. Mrs. Reeser now possessed all the ammunition
she needed to close the book on a bad marriage and open a new chapter.
Truly didn’t know what that looked like, but if Reeser could piece her life
back together after twenty-five years with a jerk, who knew? Maybe there
was hope for her yet.
Cranking her window closed, she put the cap back on and twisted off
the long-range lens. She pocketed it along with her Canon into the padded
interior of the large camera bag sitting on the passenger seat. A quick pull
zipped her baby away as her cellphone rang in the holder on her dashboard.
Lovely. Just what she didn’t need. Another go-around with a guy she
didn’t like, never mind want to admit employed her.
Taking a fortifying breath, Truly touched the flat screen.
A voice full of oil and smoke spilled out of the speaker. “Triple.”
“Yeah,” she said, gritting her teeth at the nickname. She’d asked him
repeatedly to stop calling her that, but surprise, surprise, he never listened.
Of its own volition, her gaze flicked toward the window across the
street. She grimaced. No sense looking at that again. “Money shots in the
“You coming in now?”
She glanced at the time on her phone. 12:47 AM. No way in hell was
she going in now. Later was soon enough to deal with Montrose.
