Sunday Snippet: An Untitled Work in Progress

Nope, this one doesn't have a title yet...it's from a sequel to my novel The Unicorn's Daughter (originally published by Berkley Books in 1990 as A Time for Legends)....



"Why me?" I asked, frustrated. "I'm no assassin."
"You're the one most likely to get close enough to him," Ted Harker said. "He loves the spotlight. Show him your camera and he'll follow you anywhere."
"Isn't there some Constitutional prohibition—" I started.
"That only applies to heads of state," he said, annoyed with me.
"He's an American citizen," I said, as if Ted needed to be reminded.
"He's a traitor. And if he won't return to the US and surrender himself, then he has to disappear. Permanently."

The Unicorn's Daughter is available in ebook format at Smashwords, and as an ebook or print edition at Amazon.
