Talon: Jester’s Game excerpt, Ch 2

Following Spider’s Mustang was no easy task. It was like chasing a greased up coral snake through a sugarcane field. He sped, changed three lanes at a time, and apparently never so much as even heard of a turn signal. I thought perhaps he knew I was following him but with a little more observation it became abundantly clear the chap simply didn’t know how to drive.

Taking the exit off I-20 I suddenly realized where we were going: Gate City. Gate City isn’t a neighborhood you want to get caught in after dark. For that matter, you might not want to get caught their in the daytime either.

To misquote Obi-Wan Kenobi from the original Star Wars film: “Gate City, you will never find a more wretched hive of scum and villainy.” Yea, it’s seriously that bad down there but what can you do? When you’re off doing the Devil’s work you often have to play in the Devil’s playground.
