Blood Games – Episode 16

This week’s episode features a chapter from Blood Games, Jake Ramsey Book #3, the first book Black Brick is available as a free ebook from most ebook vendors. Here is an excerpt from the show:  

KRIS WASN’T HARD TO find, but I had to circle the DataRader headquarters to do it. I had become antsy, and just as I was about to take out my phone, I spotted her SUV.

Within a stone’s throw from the entrance to the parking garage.

She shouldn’t have parked so close. I shook my head, muttering under my breath before I thought better of it. I looked around, in case somebody was close enough to have picked me up on Spectrum, and was relieved the nearest man was a block away.

Kris couldn’t have chosen a closer or more prominent place to monitor the entrance of the parking garage. She might as well have hung a sign. I’d been careful at the DataRader compound to park several blocks back to decrease the chances of us being spotted. It should have been a given she do the same here.

Perhaps fatigue was affecting her decisions.

More likely she just doesn’t believe Reed is involved in all this, I thought. Or worse she has less experience with this sort of thing than I’ve given her credit for.

Now that was a scary thought.

I was glad I’d taken the time to fix my disguise before coming to find her. I’d even added a piece of latex to my chin in hopes of fooling FaceRec. I’d done a bad job of it but hadn’t wanted to waste time to fix it. I figured the dark would cover up most of it. If anybody noticed they’d assume it was a scar. The goal was to throw off FaceRec. I planned to put a bandage over it once the sun came up.

Letting out a quiet breath, I stepped into the shadows while I observed Kris. Even with my disguise, I didn’t want to get any closer. I located the security cameras. The most obvious were at the entrances, but a place as big as the DataRader headquarters would have them all over. The cameras I saw were focused on the parking garage entrance. There was a chance she was far enough back to not be on video, but it was slight.
