It was nine o’clock in the evening. Mike Thompson and a man Mike had met ten minutes earlier were sitting in a bar in Queens Village. Nothing indicated that the man was about to die. Mike asked him for the third time, “Why did you request this meeting? We’re not making progress, unless you tell me. What is it that you want to talk to me about?”
“I need to get to know you first.”
“You know I’m a policeman, a detective. You said you read about me in the paper. What more do you need to know? You also said you are in a hurry, you have to go to the airport.”
“I need to know if I can trust you,” the man replied.
“I told you, you won’t know if you can trust a man unless you trust him. That’s the way to find out.”
This novel tells the story of four unusual people: a con artist, a former Miss USA contestant, a detective and a woman who is not influenced by people’s external appearances. These people are brought together by fate – and they do the unexpected.
