“What more could you offer me?
The implication in his impish smile annoyed the life out of her. ―Don’t even suggest it.
I don’t know what you’re thinking. I simply mean we can work together. Miguel grimaced a moment. ―This is my job, and I intend to do it.
And I intend to do mine, Casey countered. ―I’m employed to investigate news on the art world. This is a story on stolen art, and there‘s a chance a revival cult may be involved. Have you heard of any unusual killings recently?
Miguel averted his gaze.
Casey tapped her toe with impatience as she waited. ―Well, have you?
No, he said. ―Crime is not that unusual in a huge metropolis.
Do you think the mob is involved? Casey pumped for information.
This is highly sensitive, and I’m not willing to share information with you. So, I suggest you pack your bags and head back to New York…to what’s his name…Jim Richardson. I’m sure with his father’s influence you can pull a few strings.
Casey waved her hand as if swatting a fly. ―I don’t intend to go back to New York right now. I intend to finish my assignment. And as for Jim, he’s none of your damn concern.
―Fine, Miguel snapped. ―Stay out of my way!
She watched him storm off, leaving her to fume inwardly.
Barbara offered her a sip of her bottled water.
―No, I’m fine. Thanks. She took a deep breath and released it before adding, ―After all, this is a job, and no one is going to stop me.
―You can’t be so sure, señorita.” Barbara went ahead of Casey and hailed a taxi for their return to the hotel. ―You have quite an opponent in such a one. It‘s too bad he is muy guapo, handsome. Ah, I would not mind tangling business with pleasure.
Casey stared at her translator a moment then followed Miguel’s retreating figure.
So, the man of mystery not only captivated her in more ways than one, it turned out he was a government agent. One who didn’t want to work with her and wanted her to leave. The last thing she needed in her life. It only meant trouble.
