Blood Games – Episode 18

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:  

THINGS WERE QUIET ON the other side, but I came down expecting to shoot almost as soon as I landed, thinking for sure there would be guards.

As I spun with my pistol in hand, looking for trouble, I spotted what I thought was a camera and was halfway to it before I realized it was a burned-out light. After closer examination, I was left wondering why I’d thought it was a security camera because it looked nothing like one.

Shaking my head while taking a deep breath to calm my nerves, I ducked behind a tree while I waited for Kris to leave. I hadn’t given her an opportunity to argue and had made sure to not look back. She was left either doing as I suggested or getting out herself, something she was unlikely to do.

Despite her boldness, it was apparent she wasn’t trained for this sort of thing. Clandestine meetups with a set agenda in a controlled situation, she could handle. But walking into an unknown situation was not something she should do.

I’d thought her more experienced when I’d requested she accompany me. I should have taken Maxine up on her offer to send me with her more seasoned person. I’d made some assumptions about Kris and had learned the truth the hard way.

That’s why I’d put her in a position where she was forced to leave. I didn’t want to risk her life if I could avoid it. If I continued to accept Maxine’s help, I would try to keep Kris back at base where she belonged.

She wouldn’t see it that way, but she also hadn’t realized the risk she’d taken by parking so close to the DataRader headquarters. What other mistakes would she make?
