The Naked Sun (Robot #2) Lucky Starr and the Oceans of Venus (Lucky Starr #3)

He could hear the relief in her voice: Thank you—

I sighed. We had been over this twice already.‘My dear Lamair, as I said before, we have reliable sources,’ my father said.

Etiquette & Espionage (Finishing School #1)

Mutterings erupted throughout the room and I resolved to stare at the bookshelves of my father’s study, desperate to entertain myself. I wonder how long it would take to read all of them?I gritted my teeth. Nobody asked you.But you’re still talking to me, it sniggered, which always beat me. Voices aren’t meant to snigger.

Twilight Hunger (Wings in the Night #7)

Well, you get used to it after eighteen odd years, I finished and it fell silent. It never had an answer to that one.‘Well then, I say we just kill her. That way all our troubles our over.’

‘No, Lamair. That will cause problems with the human government. We have to be diplomatic.’

A vampire I should probably know the name of cut in on him. ‘Forgive me, Your Majesty, but I don’t understand why we are risking the Kingdom for the sake of one human girl? She is not worth a fight with the slayers and a possible loss of good relations with the human government, is she?’They jumped up at the same time, and moved in the direction where Barbora had left the clearing, ducking under a large branch. They pushed through some dead brambles and came back out onto the long track.

Rain began to pelt them as they left the shelter of the trees. Lightning flashed, and then they saw, up ahead, a tall tree with several long branches.A rope creaked and swung, and on the end of a noose hung Barbora. Her feet were still, and her body swung in the breeze.

The Hurricane (The Hurricane #1)

The rain had become torrential, roaring on the treetops and turning the muddy track to a blur of white. Thunder rumbled, and flashes of lightning illuminated Barbora where she hung with her eyes open, folds of skin around her neck bunched up by the rope under her chin. Moss attempted to climb the tree, but the rain hampered her efforts.‘Stop, come down!’ shouted Erika above the noise. ‘It’s too late . . . She’s dead. Go back to Peterson and call for back up. I’ll stay here.’

‘You sure, boss?’ shouted Moss, above the roar of the rain.‘Yes, go!’ shouted Erika.

Moss ran off into the trees, and Erika waited. She paced up and down in the mud, not caring that she was getting wet. Her mind was whirring. The further they dug into this case, the more complex it became.The storm seemed to be right above; the rain roared and the air fizzed with electricity. Erika was forced to stand under the tree, putting the thick trunk between her and the body.

Eventually the rain slowed, and storm began to move on. She was trying to find a signal on her phone when she heard the sound of a police siren. A squad car appeared far up the track and slowly made its way towards her, its wheels churning up the waterlogged mud. Two young male officers got out, and Erika walked to meet them, holding up her ID. They looked up at Barbora’s body.‘You haven’t touched anything? We need to secure the area,’ one of them said.
