More About This Title MURDER on DISPLAY


As soon as the Flynn brothers lifted their Glocks, Dan was in trouble. Silence descended like a cloak of doom.
No confusion crossed his mind... it was clear he would die in the next few seconds. In all his years of facing danger, he often wondered how he would react when faced with imminent death. He was about to find out.

Dan lifted the table in front of him, and charged. Crockery, the bottle of wine, and a vase filled with flowers crashed onto the floor as Dan morphed into a one man wrecking crew. Gunshots... searing pain in Dan’s ribs stopped him, but only for a moment.

One brother collapsed under the timber tabletop; the other fired. Dan heard a cry behind him as he whirled in a circle – his karate kick smashed into the gunman’s face and sent him flying across the floor. They wrestled with the gun until turned, it fired into Flynn’s chest. Dan jumped up and held the smoking weapon in his hand.
One down... the other gunman moved towards his weapon. Dan shot him.

Blood saturated Dan’s shirt and dripped onto the floor. Now pain grabbed at his bloodied stomach. A fractured rib moved. Something warm and bubbly formed in his mouth and forced him to spit; a red glob broke up on the floor.

He crawled to Diane, who lay on the floor in a pool of blood. He felt for her pulse.
None... too late.
