Author’s Note

This book makes extensive use of italics. I have received reports that ebook readers on some Android devices don’t always render them. This sentence should appear in italics. If it doesn’t, you might want to change your default font to see if that fixes the problem.

Chapter 1

She couldn’t do anything to block the smell. Her stomach fluttered and then settled. That was one thing to be said for working in the City Watch — if you stuck with it, you got tougher. Not so long ago, the mere thought of being this close to such a disgusting corpse would have had her wanting to puke. Now, this poor fellow was just another part of her job.
