Chapter One --
Three days. That’s how long I’ve been on the run. I’m down to my last forty bucks. If I don’t get answers to my questions soon, I don’t think I’m going to be able to save my heinie. I’ve got bad guys chasing me and limited options. The FBI threw me out into the cold, all because of a deep, dark secret that no one wants to shine a light on. Too many powerful people will be upset. Too much collateral damage, politically speaking. Nobody wants this can of worms turned upside down. It’s “Pin the Tail on Riley” time.
Looking back, I can tell you the exact moment it all went bad. I was doing what I do, observing criminals at work, and I recognized one of them. What’s more, he recognized me, too. And from that moment on, I knew I was running for my life.
You might assume that I’m some kind of lowlife wretch because I hang out where crimes are committed. You might even assume I condone that lifestyle and think it’s just the way things are. After all, sharks swim with the sharks. Once a shark, always a shark, right?
