Foreword: The author spent twenty-one years working as a detective. The language used in this book reflects the lexicon of reality. That lexicon is a bit different than that used in polite society. What is said between co-workers and lovers in private may seem shocking to others in the light of day. But it's how people talk; at least people I have known. I'm not trying to shock you. I just want to open a window into a world you may never actually be able to see up close. This is fiction, but it is based on history and what real people have experienced. In real life, nothing is ever as simple as it should be.
Bob Duncan ran his hand through his hair and shrugged his shoulders to ease the weight of the Sig Sauer in the shoulder holster under his left arm. He sighed. Another rape in a high rise apartment building. When would women learn to take precautions in a neighborhood where there had been four rapes in the last three months?
He reviewed the evidence in his head: purse on the counter in the kitchen, cash and credit cards still in it. Expensive electronics still on the shelves. It wasn't a burglary-turned-rape. Whoever had done this hadn't been looking for money.
