SETH EXCERPT FOR YOUR READING ENJOYMENT
His hair stiffened on the back of his neck.
Gun held at eye level in a two-hand, combat grip, Police Officer Seth Collins stepped into the warehouse away from the door and the outside streetlight. The empty, abandoned building didn’t fit. Something was wrong—out of place.
Then a soft noise. Almost silent.
A shoe grated against a small pebble on the concrete floor.
Dispatched on an anonymous tip of a possible break and entry, he thought he’d seen a faint light moving inside the building. The broken lock and sound confirmed his suspicion.
He wasn’t alone.
The intruder remained frozen in place.
Okay, you son of a bitch. You wanna play a game of hide and seek. Go for it. See if you can kick my ass.
Seth saw it in the shaft of a streetlight shining through the windows. The faint outline of a stub wall jutting perpendicular from the outside wall. Days of fighting house to house with the Marines in Fallujah taught him how to locate and identify the source of a sound. Someone was standing in the dark, fifty meters ahead, behind the wall in his two o’clock position.
After surviving six combat deployment in Iraq and Afghanistan his reflexing automatically kicked in. His mind cleared itself of all random thoughts, concentrated on his immediate surroundings. Ears listened for the slightest sounds. Moving the left foot one short step ahead, he balanced on the balls of his feet, swept his Glock 22 service pistol 180 degrees.
His peripheral vision, better than most, studied the dim outline of the interior wall. The streetlights revealed a floor covered with trash. With each silent step, he advanced by inches toward the hiding place of the person behind the wall.
Seth froze again.
