Teaser Tuesday – 21/6/22 – Double Exposure

This week’s #teasertuesday is from Double Exposure.

“We’ll find him, Simon.” Anson placed his hand on Simon’s shoulder. “The council will act now that one of our own has been killed.”

Simon shook it off. They wouldn’t be so worried about a missing human. “I’ll find him,” he muttered.

No point in tracking Ben’s phone. It would be destroyed by now. But whoever was responsible had still overplayed their hand. There would be witnesses, and CCTV would have caught them somewhere. Everyone left a trail. He just needed to find its end and yank it tightly until they fell out.

“This is police business, and he’s one of ours,” Anson said firmly. “I know he’s your partner and you’re worried, but I assure you we’ll find him for you. We’ll keep in touch, okay?”

“I’m sure you will.” Simon reached behind his back, picked up one of the photographs from Daphne’s desk and slipped it into his coat pocket. If one of Ben’s abductors had touched it, Simon would trace them that way. He had resources at his disposal and intended to use them.

“Simon?” Anson moved at vampire speed to block the doorway before he could leave. “Don’t take this into your own hands. We want them alive, okay?”

Simon smiled thinly. “Oh, so do I.”

About Anne Barwell

Anne Barwell lives in Wellington, New Zealand. She shares her home with a cat with “tortitude” who is convinced that the house is run to suit her; this is an ongoing “discussion,” and to date, it appears as though Kaylee may be winning. In 2008, Anne completed her conjoint BA in English Literature and Music/Bachelor of Teaching. She has worked as a music teacher, a primary school teacher, and now works in a library. She is a member of the Upper Hutt Science Fiction Club and plays violin for Hutt Valley Orchestra. She is an avid reader across a wide range of genres and a watcher of far too many TV series and movies, although it can be argued that there is no such thing as “too many.” These, of course, are best enjoyed with a decent cup of tea and further the continuing argument that the concept of “spare time” is really just a myth. She also hosts and reviews for other authors, and writes monthly blog posts for Love Bytes. She is the co-founder of the New Zealand Rainbow Romance writers, and a member of RWNZ. Anne’s books have received honorable mentions five times, reached the finals four times—one of which was for best gay book—and been a runner up in the Rainbow Awards. She has also been nominated twice in the Goodreads M/M Romance Reader’s Choice Awards—once for Best Fantasy and once for Best Historical. Anne can be found at https://annebarwell.wordpress.com
