Today’s excerpt focuses on the Mayor again, as well as Officer B-39. His birth name is Richard Madden, and he was once Dexter’s commanding officer. Now, he gets to see firsthand just how dangerous it is to contradict the Mayor.
“The Mayor made his way to a pile of pillows by the side of the bed, picking up a rather large and fluffy one. He ran a hand across the pure white fabric. It wasn’t something easily found anymore. Too good for the man in that bed.
“Those who challenge my authority,” the Mayor said, “Don’t often live long enough to see the consequences.”
He struggled more than would be expected of a paralyzed man, the Mayor remembered thinking to himself.”
