Yummy opened the passenger door, looked over the interior, and said, “You have got to be kidding.”
“Nope. You could call an Uber.”
Her face scrunched in distaste; she slid in and closed the door. “Hell, Maggot. Can’t you afford a new car? Doesn’t PsyLED provide you a car? Does it have a radio?” She punched the buttons and twisted the knobs.
“Probably. Eventually. And yes. But it stopped working last week. Buckle up.” I slid her a sideways glance and pulled into the light five a.m. traffic as she complied. “No working radio. We’ll have to talk,” I said.
I laughed. “About life. Tell me about yourself.”
“I’m sure you have a dossier on me. Read it.”
“My time’s valuable.” I let my words glide into church-speak.” You’uns ain’t important enough to me to read it.”
Yummy burst out laughing and twisted around in the seat so her legs were splayed, one knee angled at me. “I like you, Nell.”
“You’re not gonna say you like me?”
“My mama taught me to be polite and to not lie. Those two things aren’t always mutually agreeable.”
Yummy laughed again and dropped her head against the back window with a soft thud. Her very pale blond hair swung and fell still.
About FLAME IN THE DARK:
Nell Ingram has always known she was different. Since she was a child, she’s been able to feel and channel ancient powers from deep within the earth. When she met Jane Yellowrock, her entire life changed, and she was recruited into PsyLED—the Homeland Security division that polices paranormals. But now her newly formed unit is about to take on its toughest case yet.
A powerful senator barely survives an assassination attempt that leaves many others dead—and the house he was visiting burns to the ground. Invisible to security cameras, the assassin literally disappears, and Nell’s team is called in. As they track a killer they know is more—or less—than human, they unravel a web of dark intrigue and malevolent motives that tests them to their limits and beyond.
