The Corpses are up something.
U.S. Senator Lindsay Micha had been kidnapped and replaced with a “dead” ringer, the sister to Lilith Cavanaugh, the Queen of the Dead. Now Will Ritter must go undercover in our nation’s capital to ferret out the truth and try to stop this ambitious deader. But his mission becomes even more dangerous when he learns of a mysterious ten-legged monster that prowls the halls of the Capitol Building — a lethal monster with a taste for Corpse flesh.
Can such an alien “enemy of his enemy” truly become Will’s friend?
With a visible sigh, he unlocked the door and cracked it about six inches. “We’re not open yet.”
I stuck my sneaker in the gap. “I need to come in for a minute.”
I shoved the door with my shoulder. The guy wasn’t real big, but then neither am I. If my roommate had done this, he’d have sent the dude flying. But the best I could manage to do was force him back a step, and that was more about his surprise than my muscle.
“What do you think you’re doing?” he demanded as I stepped into his shop. The place smelled of crisp, new paper—a musty but not unpleasant odor.
“Sorry,” I said, meaning it. “This’ll only take a sec …” Then I sidestepped him and headed toward the back of the store.
He grabbed my forearm. “Look kid, I don’t know what you’re trying to pull. But get out now before I call the cops.”
I put my hand on his, found his pinky and yanked it the wrong way. He yelped and let go. I didn’t. Instead, I forced his wrist back until he dropped to one knee, grimacing in pain. “Call whoever you want,” I told him. “Like I said, I won’t be long.”
He nodded feverishly.
“Don’t worry. Everything’s cool,” I said, wondering if that was true. Well, I’d know in about a minute.
I released his hand and went on my way. He muttered something after me, but I didn’t catch it. Just as well.
