    Summary

    “The problem,” John said, “is that he really has no concept of money.”

    Beside him at the table in the diner, Marie exchanged a long look with Akram. Tall and sturdily built, with a head of tawny, curly hair, Marie Sanchez had retired years before John had, going private with some security firm, where she was presumably finally paid what she was worth. Unlike John, who was in an old shirt and jeans, and Akram, who wore a tattered jacket over slacks, Marie was fashionably dressed. Nice clothes, cute bag. Big enough to hide a pistol, of course.

    “You’re the only person in the world who could possibly think that’s a problem,” Akram finally said. It had been over a decade and a half since they’d first met, a lifetime ago in Afghanistan, and the translator didn’t look like he’d aged much. Just a little more silver in his sideburns against his solemn face. “You really haven’t changed, John.”

    Summary

    Santino looked pointedly at John. More rituals. This was clearly not Santino’s problem, or a D’Antonio problem. Politically speaking, bratva business played no part in the D’Antonio alliance. John found himself wishing it wasn’t so simple, even as he inclined his head. “Coffee?” he asked the Tarasov brothers.

    “Thanks.” Viggo said.

    “Please,” Abram said. John led them over to the dining area and went to get cups. Over from the living room, he could hear the game starting up. Nobody touched the coffee. John sat down, wincing. Recovery was slow this time.

    The brothers didn’t miss that, of course. “How are you?” Viggo asked. It wasn’t a polite greeting this time, more like a manager checking on a resource.

    Summary

    "Correct me if I'm wrong," Aurelio groaned, alternating between putting his head between his knees and laying back onto the couch, a hand shielding his eyes in an effort to stave off his headache. John was surprised he managed to even speak anything more than three words. Aurelio brushed against his own mouth and flinched. "But did we just kidnap Gianna D'Antonio last night?"

    Jimmy was still out cold.

    "Not exactly," John said, sipping his coffee.

    "What does that mean?"

    "It was the wrong girl."

    Summary

    John had been acting odd all morning, staying closer than usual, even when Santino snapped at him after breakfast. Normally, John would take the hint and make himself scarce, sitting in the garden or hiding in the nursery, but today something had clearly malfunctioned. Santino was heading out to the driveway, buttoning his jacket, when John caught him by the elbow. Cassian actually startled. When they weren’t alone, John was painstakingly unobtrusive.

    “Yes?” Santino pulled away.

    “Where are you going?”

    “Rome.” Santino narrowed his eyes. “Why?”

    John stilled, looking Santino over searchingly. His face stayed blank, but Santino had learned the cues, subtle as they were. This was John’s version of confusion. “Now?”

    “Obviously. What’s wrong with you?”

    John stared at him for a moment more, bemused, then he leaned in, close to Santino’s ear. “You’re going into heat.”
