The Naked Beat


"Look, Jim. I didn't have a chance to find what we talked about finding before you made a move on Jade Chen," I said, feeling like a failure.

Harrigan nodded, "It's okay, Jake. You were right. I should've already done my job and to hell with the consequences. Well, I'm doing that now. And I'm ready to face whatever comes after."

I shook my head, "Give me one hour before you move on Jade Chen."

I started toward the aft of the ship.

"What are you going to do, Randolph?" he yelled.

"I'm gonna save your ass one more time!"

    I guess Li's henchman would be left as shark fodder...and I'm told they love Chinese leftovers.

    Thank you all so much. I didn't think I was a very good writer, so I appreciate the kind words and encouragement.

    Hang on to your seat, Aspen! It ain't over yet! There are still some loose ends Jake has to tie up before he can mark this case closed.
