After taking a brief break last week followed by a very complicated week, I’m back with another snippet for the Weekend Writing Warriors blog chain. This is another sample from my current WiP, Lessons of War. When last we peeked into the story, Chief Detective Inspector Mara Hayle was investigating the murder of Gideon’s colonial governor and a world that pledged allegiance to House deHavilland over a decade ago. But a call from from the Chief Constable’s office interrupted her investigation:
I loved Chief Constable Conway’s office. The large wrap around windows allowed for a glorious view of the cedar forest south of Hayden. Gideon was the only world outside of Earth where Cedrus libani flourished. I was so wrapped up with the view that it took me a second to noticed the dark hair man that sat in a chair in front of the Chief’s desk.
The Chief turned to greet me, “Inspector Hayle, I’m sorry to pull you out of your investigation but something has come up.”
I tucked a wayward strand of hair over my left ear, “I came as soon as a I could, sir”
“I like your to meet Antonio Saavedra, a member of Baron Montagu’s court and our new investigative liason,” said the Chief with a pained grimace.
Well that is all for now. I hope you enjoyed this little tidbit. You should visit and leave a comment on all the participating blogs on the blog chain list. I hope you have a terrific weekend.
