Excerpt from Chapter 5 – “CHUCK”

Published May 19, 2018

Chuck kissed Carolyn as she began reading the research report from the
Iranian Chuck had hired.

“You can read that tomorrow,” he said.

“You need your nap. Go to sleep,” said Carolyn.

Chuck was twenty minutes into his nap, and Carolyn was completely
absorbed in her reading, when an unusual phone ring came from Chuck’s
backpack, under his chair.

His mind screeched to alertness. Only nine people had the number to
that phone. A call on that phone could be a life-or-death issue.

He fetched the phone from between the guns in his backpack, brought
it up to his lips, and whistled softly.
