Sample Sunday: Polar Night Excerpt



 
As the plane took off and flew through the snow, Danny couldn’t stop thinking about Aleksei Nechayev, his deathly cold hands, and his cobalt blue eyes with their unflinching gaze. Danny had been around more rapists, murderers, kidnappers, and general human garbage than he could count, and none of them had ever given him the chills. None of them had caused him to feel a rush of terror that took him completely by surprise and floored him.

He leaned his head back on the seat and tried to figure out what was so different about Nechayev. Unbidden, his mind drifted back to Amanda Fiske. She had described her attacker as unusually tall and blond, with dark blue eyes that were filled with evil.

Danny scowled, remembering how his mother used to warn him that drinking too much alcohol would addle the brain. Maybe he had finally done it and his brain was addled. What else could explain where his mind was now going?

Addled brain or not, he couldn’t deny what was now suddenly so obvious. Amanda Fiske may be crazy, but her description of her attacker had been spot on.

She had described Aleksei Nechayev.
