TGIBBF #24 - Book Blurb Friday, August 12

Well, I'm on time this week. I was three days late last week, so I hope you all get a chance to see that blurb as well as this one. I'm on time, although barely! But, I hope you like my efforts.

As usual, Lisa Ricard Claro hosts this writing meme wherein we are offered a photo as our inspiration for a book blurb for an imaginary book cover featuring that photo. The challenge is open to anyone who wants to participate, so please join us.

Here is our "book cover" for next week's Book Blurb Friday #24, provided by Sioux Roslawski

Dealing Death's Hand
“You never get used to it, he thought. “Being shot is a pain.” Serge chuckled at that thought despite his agony. He didn’t have much farther to go to reach help. Just through the archway and his favorite “private” physician would treat his wounds without alerting authorities.
“Who was it this time?” Serge wasn’t sure, but he knew who he’d been investigating and was sure there was a connection. “One of these days you’re gonna end up dead!” “Well, if I do, you’ll be the first to know, Doc.” “I mean it. You’ve got to stop doing this kind of work. I appreciate the business, but not that much.”
He couldn’t stop. Not yet. Too many hands in the pot and one of them was trading secrets. Secrets that could tear the country apart. He had to finish this job.

Hmm...since Serge has a "private" physician, he must not be part of the establishment. I'd like to know more about him. He sounds like a bit of a superhero to me, hiding in shadows, like Batman. :)

Those first two sentences said it all and reeled me in at the same time. Beautifully done.
