We ended last week’s snippet with a quiet moment for Joel & Kieran. Of course, it didn’t last long. A scream interrupts and soon they’re embroiled in a proper train wreck of a case. And this is how it starts….
From Leap of Faith
“Looks like a domestic that’s gotten out of hand,” Kieran briefed them while he kept an eye on the yacht. He waved a hand at the scared, teary woman who was being comforted by one of the uniforms. “The boy’s Shane Martell, aged six. That’s his mother. And the guy who threatened to kill him is his father.”
“On the boat.”
Kieran listened out for sounds of a fight, for shouts, maybe gunshots. He’d not expected an explosion. One moment, the swish yacht was there, then the whole side of the Marina was on fire.
