Teaser Tuesday ~ The Negotiator Part 2 ~ 1/2/18


http://thepurplebooker.com


My teaser for this week is from:

285011

First Paragraph:

 Kate O'Malley had been in the dungeon since dawn.

The members of the emergency response group comprising the SWAT and hostage-rescue teams had been relegated to the basement of the county building during the last department reorganization.  The metal desks were crammed together, the concrete walls needed repainting; the old case files made the room smell musty; and the hot and cold water pipes coming from the boiler room rumbled overhead.

The team was proud of its little hovel even if the plants did die within days.  The location allowed for relaxed rules.  The only evidence of bureaucracy was a time clock by the steel door so those not on salary could get paid for all their overtime.

 
Teaser:
 
 
"Tempting."
 
"But you are passing."  The disappointment was intense.
 
"Taking a rain check.  It's late.  You need to go home."
