By Alan Baxter
Alex Caine, a fighter by trade, is drawn into a world he never knew existed — a world he wishes he’d never found. After a fight one night, an enigmatic Englishman, Patrick Welby, claims to know Alex’s secret. Welby shows Alex how to unleash a breathtaking realm of magic and power, drawing him along a mind-bending course beyond his control. And control is something Alex values above all else.

A Silhouette short story, set in the 80s, long before she met Alex Caine. London gangsters and a brutal murder give Silhouette a mystery to sink her teeth into. This story was originally written for an anthology called Side Quests, where authors were to write short stories with characters from their existing series. Sadly, the anthology fell through, so I'm publishing the story here. This is the first time it's been seen anywhere.
