Gagged – an intro

“Right, on my way. Should take me ten minutes, five if you can have coffee waiting for me when I get there.”

“You got it detective. I’ll make sure Andy picks one up for you.”


Duvalier got up, got dressed, grabbed his gun and his shield. He knew the address well, but if anyone found out why his career was over.
