    Summary

    At his desk, Jon closes his eyes. He waves a vague hand in the man’s direction. “This is Michael-uh, Mike Crew,” he mumbles. “Ex Altiora, Lichtenberg scars, tosses people off skyscrapers.”

    “Oh," Martin says. Recognition strikes a moment later. Like lightning, he thinks, and immediately feels tactless. "Oh. I see.”

    “I wish you wouldn’t,” Mike Crew says pleasantly. “I really just want to be left alone. It’s what I’m trying to communicate here, but it seems to go in one ear and out the other.” Again, Martin feels that awful swooping in his stomach, as if the floor is lurching away under his feet.

    Summary

    Martin gnaws his lower lip. “Do you think he’ll - I mean, do you think it’ll be…”

    Melanie's smile becomes a little less of a grimace. She claps his shoulder. “Martin. It’ll be fine. It’s only temporary. He’s not moving in.”

    Martin chuckles. “Yes. Of course.”

    Summary

    Playing the skeptic isn’t the only lie that Jon has told on tape. He’d like to avoid his annoying feelings for Martin Blackwood as much as possible, but unfortunately, the isolated hotel where Georgie Barker’s girlfriend has mysteriously vanished is only booking for their annual couples’ retreat. Although Martin would love to spend a weekend away from London and the threat of Prentiss, he fears that posing as Jon’s partner will reveal the depth of his affections.
