Kate Gardener Mysteries #5

It was about halfway through the food, and a couple of drinks in, before Pierce started talking.

“I suppose you heard about yesterday.”

Kate nodded. “Yeah, I heard. You seem pretty calm about it.” Pierce nearly choked on the sip of beer he was taking, but his coughing dissolved into laughter that went just a little too long, and too intensely, for Kate’s comfort.

“Calm. Yeah.” Pierce took another, larger sip of beer, swallowing without difficulty. “Let’s just say… I have to buy a new boxing bag.”

Kate grimaced. “Killed it, huh?”

“Oh yeah, it’s dead.” Pierce winked at that, and Kate sighed internally, relieved as she felt the tension begin to ebb away.

“So, what’s the next step? What’s Reynolds going to do?”

Pierce finished chewing a mouthful of his burger before he replied. “Mister Reynolds is employing an investigator to check things out. More accurately, check me out, and see if he can find some way to prove that I didn’t beat the confession out of Eddowes, or plant the murder weapon.” He grabbed up a couple of rosemary salt chips, but hesitated before putting them in his mouth. “It will be over soon, one way or another.”

Kate frowned. “One way or another? What is that?”

Pierce sighed raggedly, and chewed on, even as he spoke. “That is me being realistic.”

“Realistic.” Kate studied Pierce, the frown not leaving her face until her scrutiny came to an end. “Huh… okay, so, realistically… how much of it is true?”

Razor’s Edge

Summer, and the city is heating up…

When a scandalous tabloid reporter is gunned down in broad daylight, the question isn’t who did it, but who wouldn’t? The man had “dirt” on some of the biggest names in politics and business, and rumor has it he was ready to break something big… a scandal that could threaten the upcoming elections, and even the very foundations of government.

Caught up in a tide of crime and controversy, where friend and foe alike are poised upon the razor’s edge…

DS Richard Pierce finds his career and his reputation in peril when he is accused of planting evidence to frame the “Cathgate Ripper”, a vicious serial killer whose trial is poised to begin. Convinced of his innocence, Kate Gardener races desperately to gather evidence to salvage the case and exonerate Pierce.

Kate has balanced on that edge before… but will she be able to save her friends without falling from grace herself?

Kate let out a whoosh of air, and wilted a bit. This was proving to be a more complicated evening of coffee and conversation than she’d anticipated…

“Parris, who are we really trying to save here?”

Parris grimaced, and pinched the bridge of his nose, doubtless to stifle the emotions that were on the threshold of overwhelming him. “I don’t know anymore… My father is… my father… but…” He trailed off, at a loss for words.

“Okay, let me ask you this.” Kate paused a moment, gathering her words. “Do you believe that your brother will be a good Prime Minister if he’s elected?”

Parris didn’t hesitate, nodding enthusiastically. “Absolutely. Yes.”

Kate nodded slowly. To save the son, they’d have to save the father, even if he didn’t deserve it… “Can you get the note for me? And anything else related to this?”

Parris nodded again. “Yes, of course. What are you going to do?”

A ‘Mona Lisa’ smile appeared on Kate’s face. “I’ll do what I can.”
