    Summary

    She is sixteen and he must be twice that. Pinched brows and a sun-drenched face; an open and honest look in his eye that don’t match the carnage laid out at his hand. She touches her tongue to the fine droplets of wet blood that coat her lips and cheek; it tastes of earth and salt, like the faraway memory of sea spray.

    Summary

    It's a beautiful little house on a quiet street.

    Too bad it doesn't want its new owners there.

    ...at least at first. Then it doesn't want them to leave.

    Summary

    Norman had supposed that he understood the way Travis had looked at him since the first day. The way that men had looked at him before. He could see in the mirror his smooth face and his bowed top lip, girlish. Although he would have handed over a year's pay to trade places with a man with a strong jaw and a beard, Norman vaguely understood that he could have power, too, if he wanted it and if he knew how to grasp it. The kind of power that a pretty girl has. Travis thought he was a pretty girl. That was it. And in some unformed way Norman had known what Travis was about just as soon as Bible and Gordo had headed off to the mess tent, and Travis had leaned over and said, ‘Hey. Hey. I wanna show you something.’

    Summary

    ☛ in which the trial against the deadlock gang is about to begin and gabriel sees jesse again for the first time in a long time

    "Nothing to be worried about," Gabriel told him, relaxing back casually.

    That was a lie, of course. Everything was riding on this trial. Jesse knew it too. They could lose. No one in the gang would be set free - there was too much incriminating evidence for that - but they could be given shorter sentences or be placed in minimum-security prisons. They would come for Jesse the minute they were released. They needed to be put behind bars for a good long while, and Jesse’s testimony on the witness stand was the only thing would accomplish that.

    Summary

    Jack and Gabriel make up after the Venice Incident.

    “You haven’t spoken to me in days,” Gabriel said softly, like even speaking to him might shatter him to pieces.

    “Is that so strange?” It came out strangled, rough in his throat. Jack swallowed around his resentment. “Do you kno—“

    “Jack, can we please not fight?”
