Welcome to Weekend Writing Warriors on Patricia Green Books! It’s been a busy week, but lots of good things are going on. Today, I’m sharing more of my detective romance, Striker. This segment is pretty self-explanatory. It’s the opening of Chapter 2. (Some naughty language follows.)

The next morning, I realized it had been a huge mistake to allow my partner to drive the police vehicle to the scene of the latest murder. She was reckless and completely unconcerned about other cars. Sure, we had our flasher in the window and the siren on, but we were in an unmarked car. People were slower to get out of the way than they would be for a marked police car. “Geez, slow the fuck down!”

She grinned at me and slewed the car on the wet road. A moment later, she was back in control, but her grin was a little false. I gripped the oh shit bar above the window and held on for dear life.

I believe you are getting an idea of why Detective Striker’s partner might end up getting a reprimand.

  1. A wild ride indeed! I felt like I was in the car with them, really a good snippet…

  2. “…the oh shit bar…” lol! Fantastic bit of writing, Patricia!

  3. You’ve got kind of a Lethal Weapon thing going here, it seems. Nice!

  4. I love the false grin- it reveals so much, like maybe she’s pushing to appear more brave than she really is. Great snippet.

  5. LOL. Love the phrase, “the oh shit” bar.
