"If you haven't read a Hawkman story yet, try this one, you'll love it and you will be interested so much that you will want to read the previous ones as well."
Jennifer sat at her computer, concentrating on the next book in her mystery series. When the phone rang, she let the answering machine pick up.
"This call is for Jim Anderson. If you're there, please answer."
She immediately jumped to her feet with a pounding heart. No one had used Hawkman's birth name since Dirk Henderson, the double agent who wanted to kill her husband several years ago. Trembling, she stared at the instrument's blinking red light. This could be another nemesis out to get him.
After a slight pause, the voice said, "I'll call back later."
The click of the hang-up left her reeling. She paced the floor and ran trembling fingers through her short, curly brown hair. This would definitely upset Hawkman. When he quit the Agency, he dreaded the day when someone from his past would find him. After Dirk had been caught and put into prison, he'd finally relaxed, figuring too much time had gone by now for him to be in danger.
Jennifer wrung her hands. How'd this person find our number? The telephone bill was in the name of Tom and Jennifer Casey. He obviously knew more about Hawkman than she cared to think about. The gnawing in her stomach told her she should call her husband right away. This man could be searching for him right now, and Hawkman needed to be on guard.
Jennifer picked up the phone and punched the number to his office.
"Tom Casey, Private Investigator."
"Hi, how's it going?"
"Just fine. Don't tell me you forgot to add something to this long grocery list?"
"No, but I just received a phone call for Jim Anderson."
A silence hung over the line for several moments.
"Who was it?"
"I don't know. I let it ring because I was busy and the machine took the message. He said he'd call back."
"This is very interesting. There's someone still out there looking for me. Maybe I'll recognize the voice."
"It's possible; the recording is fairly clear. No voice changer. Do you want to hear it now?"
"No, I'll wait until I get home."
"Do you think it could be just an old school buddy looking for you?"
"Hard to say. But I doubt it. Be sure to lock up and turn on the alarm after we've talked. I don't want to scare you, but no sense in taking any chances."
"Okay. Honey, watch your back. And remember I love you."
"I love you, too. I'll see you soon."
