Read an Excerpt
Peyton stepped closer. Those few steps revealed a pool of blood around the man. Peyton gasped and looked away. This was bad. She took a deep stabilizing breath and looked back at the stranger. She knelt down and heard him struggling to breathe. A sucking wound in the stranger’s chest bubbled as he tried to draw air into his lungs. The wound itself made gurgling noises. She stood up from the blood, now wet on her legs and pajama bottoms. A tea towel hung over the sink, and she reached for it with bloodstained hands.
