Read an Excerpt
“Then what do you want?”
“You know my name? Know I live nearby? Know I grew up not far from here?” He crossed his arms. “What do you want?”
She didn’t answer for a second. “I’m a reporter.”
He chuckled. The men on the beach lifted the tarp, but they blocked his view. “Looks like you’ve got quite the story on your hands. First on the scene.”
“I’m not that kind of reporter.”
“No. I work for Lifestyle magazine.”
“Lifestyle, huh? What lifestyle are you interested in?”
He smirked. “Let me guess. You want to interview me?”
“Why not? Everyone wants to get an interview with you. You’re a millionaire playboy who’s become a recluse. The Howard Hughes of our time. You’re a huge scoop.”
“Why not? Don’t you want the world to know the truth?”
“That you’re not as messed up as they say you are. That you’re not a drug user or psychotic. That you’re not building sandcastles in your bedroom in your free time. Or tying up seagulls and eating them for lunch.”
He grimaced. “Is that what they’re saying about me?”
“Depends on the magazine.”
He shook his head. “I’m obviously not keeping up on current trends.”
“So tell them that you don’t do any of those things.”
He tilted his head. “And how do you know I don’t?”
She didn’t say anything, but her eyes moved back to the beach. The men were moving the body into a zippered bag. They tried to keep the bystanders from watching by holding up a blanket, but a strong gust of wind blew and the blanket moved and he got a quick but clear view of the woman. A chill shot through him when he realized he recognized her. He knew the victim.
“Oh my God.”
“What?” she asked.
He felt the blood leave his face, and he stared at the sand.
He looked for his dog. “Max?” He saw Max chasing a seagull.
Max ran up to him and shook out the water on his coat. “Let’s go, Max.”
“Please, Mr. Steele. Would you consider it?”
He didn’t answer her. His wooden legs didn’t want to move, but he forced them over the sand, the face of the victim echoing in his mind. He blinked and tried to think back. When had he seen her last? Calculating the time in his head, he grimaced when he remembered. Three days. It had been three days since he’d slept with her. He felt the urge to lose his pizza, but he held it back. Picking up his pace, he walked fast through the sand and ignored the reporter behind him.
“Mr. Steele? Are you okay? Can I follow up with you later?”
Leaving the scene, he said nothing.
Born and raised in Dallas, TX, J. T. Bishop began writing in 2012. Inspired by a video that theorized the meaning of the end of the Mayan calendar, J. T. began the Red-Line trilogy. The video surmised that the earth was the central hub of activity for extraterrestrials thousands of years ago. J.T. didn’t know whether that was true or not, but it did spawn an idea. What if those extraterrestrials were still here? Two years and a lot of work later, the first three Red-Line books were complete, but she’s not done. The Red-Line saga develops as she continues to write new books.
