Searching for an Out

This except from FRANK, INCENSE AND MURIEL takes place just before Muriel agrees to help in the investigation to find a missing woman. It's not that she doesn't want to help a friend. It's working alongside her highschool nemesis, Frankie Salerno, that has her worried.

Seconds passed as I frantically searched for an out.

“I wouldn’t ask if it wasn’t important, Muriel.”

Desperation laced Jack’s every word.

I exhaled slowly, mentally weighing the pros and cons.

As if I actually had a choice.

The truth was I owed Jack.

I owed him big time.
