Shit. He’d programmed it. Set a trap for me, like the cagey cat he was.
Fear knocked hard against my belly as I glanced around.
Justin hadn’t called back and that just wasn’t right. Had they discovered the death of Marlowe? Immediately, I wanted to kick myself. Of course they had. Justin had already been trying to track Damon down. Damn it.
