Excerpt from The House On Candlewick Lane,
by Amy M. Reade
I left the cathedral and was returning slowly to the flat through Princes Street Gardens when I got the feeling someone was watching me. Wheeling around, I was just in time to see movement behind a grouping of trees nearby. I was suddenly afraid. Looking around for other people, I noticed for the first time that I was quite alone in the gardens. Only a few tourists strolled the grounds in the distance. No busy corporate types were taking a shortcut through the gardens to their next meeting. No lovers, no students, no children.
Just the person behind the trees.
Trying to pick up my pace, I limped along through the gardens, looking ahead to the closest route back to the street. But I wasn’t fast enough. Someone grabbed my elbow and jerked me around.
I gasped. The man wore a plastic, tan-colored mask, but I could tell it was the person who had pushed me in the cathedral. His trench coat was still tied tightly around him. I felt my eyes widen and I knew instantly that he was no stranger to the fear staring back at him.
“What do you want?” I demanded, hoping he would mistake my loud tone for bravado.
“Where is he?” the man growled.
“Who?” I asked, bewildered.
“You know who. Where is he?”
I shook my head. “You’ve mistaken me for someone else,” I said, trying to ease my arm from his grip.
“Oh, no I haven’t. We know he’s here in Edinburgh. Tell me where he is or when we find him—and we will find him—we’ll make sure you never see your daughter again.”
