“Don’t worry about the stones,” Aurore said in the silence that followed. “Even if someone wanted to rob me, they wouldn’t have time to plan it in advance. And if they do, it’s just stones. I can always get others.”
He wasn’t worried about the stones. He checked the rearview mirror for the hundredth time. No tail. It actually would have been a relief to know they were being followed. He couldn’t fight an enemy he didn’t see, and just knowing someone might be there consumed energy he could have otherwise used more efficiently.
The thumping coming from the back of the car put his urge to lecture her on proper planning and risk costs on hold.
“What was that?” Aurore asked. “Do we have a flat tire?”
He frowned. “No.”
The thumps repeated. They were coming from the trunk.
Dale pulled over on the side of the road. “Stay here.” He jumped out and reached for his gun.
Of course, Aurore didn’t listen and got out, as well. Instead of arguing, he signaled for her to stay back. She did … barely.
Gun in hand, Dale popped open the trunk. Given the little space left by Aurore’s and his luggage, it could only be a midget or…
“Rosie!” Aurore gasped at the sight of the girl, her big brown eyes blinking at them, bothered by the light. “What are you doing here?”
Rosie unfolded her small body from between two suitcases and climbed out of the trunk, showing no sign of being intimidated by the presence of the two adults scowling at her. “You’re going to see Uffi. I’m going with you.” The pieces of metal laced in her teeth glinted as she spoke.
“No. We’re going on a business trip. We’re not going to meet with the circus.” Dale put the gun away, although he was tempted to keep it in sight and scare her with it. It would have been for her own good. She wouldn’t end well if she kept hitching rides with people who were basically strangers.
“It’s all right. I can wait.” Unfazed, Rosie grabbed her travel bag with her left hand, walked around the car, and climbed into the back seat.
“But—” Dale said.
The door closed.

You don’t always get what you want, but if you’re lucky, you might get what you need.

For one week only, an impenetrable castle is open to the public, and Dale Armstrong has come to Bratislava to rob it. When he finds his partner’s arms mangled, he desperately searches for a way to fix him before time runs out.

Because the war in the Far East is sapping all the allied nation’s resources, only The Nightingale Circus has the spare parts, the power, and the expertise to fix prosthetics and help the injured, but nothing is free.

Unfortunately, Dale doesn't know about The Nightingale Circus’s side job, but a forced encounter with the most dangerous woman in the city, the Golden Lady, sends him their way. On this roller coaster of crazy twists and flips, schemes and deceit, wishes and dreams, no one can foresee how the aerialist will land.

Anything is possible in a world of Broken People.
