This is another excerpt from Jasper City, about an outlaw seeking revenge against his brother and the man appointed to stop him.
Last week’s excerpt mentioned photographic evidence that Cynthia was in league with Citizen 71/Edward. Turns out that Dex previously received these photographs courtesy of an informant. Significant snipping was required here:
Several of the pictures were of a tall, hooded figure who matched the description of citizen 71. Standing with him was another figure he recognized.
…He paused at a photo of the two of them, locked in an embrace that she initiated. What have you done, Cynthia?
“Have you shown these to anyone else?” Dex asked.
“…I’ll take them. Tell no one about this.”
