Friendly little excerpt...

Here is another little tidbit from BRILLIANT DISGUISE...

Tuna from a packet and a Diet Coke for dinner. Again. Not much to talk about, but it did its job. Thirty pounds in six months. Take that, Jenny Craig. Thomas Marks reached into the couch cushion for the remote that somehow found its way under him again, then flipped channels. He stopped on one channel for a time, and listened to them talk about houseboats as he shook his head. It’d be nice, but who could afford one?
The heavy wind battered against the door of the small outside deck of the apartment, rattling the sliding screen door as it did every time the wind blew hard enough. It was definitely hard enough now. But that didn’t bother Marks.
He was trying very hard to ignore what was really bothering him. 

Jarboe out...
