Excerpt from Chapter X – “Kendra”:

Pam awoke rather groggily to the sound of her phone ringing. Shaking the cobwebs from her head, she grabbed a towel and jumped out of the tub, racing to answer it before the ringing stopped. “Hello?” It was Charles, her station’s news director. “Charles? Oh, God—I’m not late for work, am I? I have no idea what time it is.” She began frantically looking for her watch. “What?” she couldn’t believe what she was hearing, so she went back toward the tub to sit on the edge of it.

“What do you mean, I’m on a two-week suspension pending a formal investigation? You can’t be serious. Don’t do this to me, Charles! My work is all that’s left of my life! To hell with the morals clause! I was in college, for Christ’s sake! No, I’m sorry, Charles. Of course I know this isn’t your call. What about the murder story I was working on? What? What do you mean, you have to go? Answer the question, Charles! Charles? Charles, don’t you hang up … ” The phone line had gone dead.
