Dangerous Mistakes by Susan Hunter

Dangerous Mistakes by Susan Hunter

Excerpt | Dangerous Mistakes by Susan Hunter

Chapter 1

“Oops, sorry, if I could just get into that center desk drawer there.” I gently rolled her away from the desk, edged my drawer out a couple of inches, and stuck my arm into the depths until I felt cardboard. I tweezered out the spiral-bound notebook between two fingers.

“All of us. Dying. It’s not right.”

The Victim of the System
by Steve Hadden
on Tour May 1-31, 2018
