 This week's quote is from "The Stranger You Know", the third book in Andrea Kane's Forensic Instincts series. Forensic Instincts is a private investigative firm and they are working on a case. In this scene, one of the members is reaching out for help. There's nothing between Marc and Ryan, they are both straight and seeing women but this scene made me laugh. Since the book is generally grim, I appreciated the break. This scene occurs at their place of employment.

He glanced at his watch-1:30AM. He wasn't discouraged. He knew Marc would still be awake and working.

Sure enough, when he went upstairs, he found Marc cross-checking the employee background searches Ryan had done on the Auburn Correctional Facility staff.

"Anything?" Ryan asked.

"Nope, not yet." Marc stretched. "I need a break."

"Good. Because I need a date."

Marc's eyebrows rose in amusement. "Do I get a corsage?"

"You get to play a video surveillance game with me, from setup to stakeout. Interested?"

"Sure." Marc rose, looking down at his T-shirt and jeans. "At least I don't have to change my clothes. I hate playing dress-up."

"Just bring refreshments," Ryan advised. "We're going to get bored, cramped and hungry. But I'm hoping it will pay off."

"Lead the way."

  2. Oh I flipping LOVE her books. It's been a few years though but I gobbled a bunch of them up a while back. I really loved her FBI series and wished it had been more than just 2 books. Haven't tried this series yet. Gonna have to though :)
