A pragmatic man, not prone to imagining things, still Matt felt the difference in a room where death came quietly and one where the victim saw it coming.

This one saw it coming, fought it hard.

Matt stepped into the room through air still thick with smoke and betrayed trust.

Alice propped a shoulder against the door frame and pulled out the witness's file, scanning for information they didn't need to know. Matt didn't stop her. They all had their own routine for coping. Alice liked to bond with the victim. Probably a female thing. He liked to keep his distance.

“It started with a family affair turned nasty. Victim was a witness against her ex-brother-in-law and upstanding citizen, Richard Hastings.”

“Upstanding citizen with his own hit man?” Matt looked at her with one brow arched.

Alice made a movement that could have been a nod or a shrug. “Dani Gwynne, divorced romance writer.” She found a photo, studied it, and then handed it to him. “She doesn't look like a romance writer or a murder witness.”

What she looked like didn't matter anymore, but he was curious to see what a romance writer looked like, so he studied the photo.

Alice was right, she didn't look like a romance writer. Or like what they'd seen in the living room. Her face looked too alive to be dead, surprisingly attractive. Weren't romance writers frustrated wall flowers or something?

Her face had a grownup beauty, as opposed to the walking corpses of fashion runways and Hollywood semi-prostitutes.

A charm that owed nothing to youth, artifice or surgical enhancement and everything to character, though he was sure Alice would insist her good bones helped some.

The lines at the edges of her green eyes and smiling mouth, the fullness time had added to her figure, Matt considered a plus. He'd lost his taste for the young when he quit being young.

Matt frowned down at the photo, uncomfortable with the odd feeling that he had missed something by not knowing her.
