Later, Dr. Patel swings by with a group of medical students. The pages in their notebooks rustle around me as they scribble every word he says. To them, I’m no more than a typical specimen of what he calls the first stage of coma. “During this stage,” he says, “patients are incapable of voluntary activities such as eye opening and forming speech.” Ha ha, if only he knew! In spite of his learned opinion, I can form speech all right, but the words remain in my head instead of slipping off my tongue. At any rate, this he should know: Silence is golden. It allows me to listen, to gather clues. I feel like a fish in a fishbowl, hovering just behind the glass. I watch them watching me. Correction:...
Meanwhile, a visitor has just entered the fenced yard. He is walking toward us in the light drizzle. Wrinkling his nose, Timmy squints against a ray of sun that shines for a moment through the heavy clouds. Then, he cries, “Oh! Dad’s here!” His mother stiffens a bit and rushes ahead of us to meet her ex. “What are you doing here, Ed? At this early hour, too?” “They told me to take a few days off.

I have new release! Don't forget to scroll to the bottom and enter the Rafflecopter.mybook.to/BeautifullyStolen Roman is tired of games. Brett is certain they are playing.

As his Chevrolet slows down to a stop, Dr. Patel is eyeing my knees. At first, I press them tightly together and smooth down my skirt as far as it can go, which is not much. Then I figure, why not let him swoon over what he’ll never get to touch? Don’t hate me for acting sexy. I already hate myself for it. At the same time, I recognize that seduction may be my best weapon. I must get him to lower his defenses, so I may gather clues about his past. Nothing will please me more than to gain confidence in the veracity of his education. A failed experiment is not what I want to be. Dr. Patel hops out, comes over to my side while spreading out his umbrella, and opens the door for me. This is the...
