An excerpt from Misfortune of Birth
[Always Cambridge 3]
“Is she still alive?”
“We think so.”
“Well, that's just fantastic, Alex! The FBI fucking thinks so.”
“Making friends again, Holly? They can hear you.”
“I’m well aware. The whole fuckin’ world can hear me and watch me. And you know what, Alex, for once I don’t give a fuck about this goddamn case!”

And now, I’d fallen in love with him. In love? Really? I stared at my own shocked reflection in the mirror. How could this be? I loved Randy. I would love Randy always. I crumbled to the floor and sobbed. And with my eyes shut I no longer saw Randy, my fair-haired beautiful saviour. I saw Victor. My dark and forbidden soul mate.
