The Consignment


Chapter 1 - sample


'You'll recognize Trevanian?'

'I'll know him,' I said.

'Tell him who you are, background history.'

I looked up from my coffee to Milton Rossiter, the major shareholder and president of Haplon Systems, my employer.

'Who I am?'

'Ex-Army, that bit.' He skirted around behind our stand, sucking in his gut, then he came back with a big cardboard cutout of a rifle and propped it against the table. He clicked his fingers and pointed at me. 'Hey, didn't he have somethin' to do with Grenada? Maybe give you two somethin' to talk about.'

'I was never in Grenada.'
