Kill Shot

by Anne Patrick




Former combat medic Kory Wagner survived four war zones. Now she’s home and out of the Army for good and someone is trying to kill her in her own backyard. Just as disturbing is the handsome sheriff who’s on the case. Sheriff Sean Harding doesn’t quite know what to think of the decorated veteran that managed to outsmart an entire search party. What bothers him more is the body of a PI, whom she hired, was found dead in a building she owns. And Kory isn’t being very cooperative with helping him find the answers as to why someone would kill her sister and want her dead. Will he be able to keep her alive along enough to discover the truth?




Kory heard a sound a few yards in front of her. She quickly scanned the area. Three rows of huge metal shelves lined the interior. She inched forward, peering around the corner of the second row. Mr. Urlik lay on his side, facing her, clutching his chest. His eyes were opened and his mouth moved, but no sound came out. A heart attack? She ran to him, knelt down on the cement floor, and took his hand. It was wet, slimy. She looked down and saw his hand covered in blood. Her eyes shifted to his chest. A large crimson stain spread across the width of his white shirt from a small hole near the center. He was breathing erratically. Experience told her a bullet had pierced at least one lung and he didn’t have much time. She immediately pressed the heel of her right hand against the wound.


“I’m sorry,” he murmured.


“Where’s your cell phone?” Hers was in her backpack but she didn’t want to waste valuable time digging it out.


“No time. Get out.”


“Who did this, Mr. Urlik?”


He grabbed her right hand and squeezed it tightly. “You were right — no accident.”


His hand went limp.


Kory felt something in the palm of her hand, looked down and saw it was a key. She shoved it into her jeans pocket. A whizzing sound buzzed past her, followed by the unmistakable clink of a bullet ricocheting off metal. She instinctively threw herself over his body as another bullet struck metal. Kory felt for a pulse. There was none. She lowered her hand to his chest and felt under both arms and along his waist. I thought all PIs carried guns. Just my luck this one didn’t.

    Thanks for the great excerpt! I do have a question for Anne…if your book was picked up by Hollywood and you were given the option as one of the “producers” to choose your ideal cast for the movie – who would you choose to play Kory and who would you choose to play Sean?

    Thanks for the giveaway

    Maria, I think Channing Tatum would make an awesome Sean. As for Kory, I would like Keira Knightly.
    Thanks so much for the question. Good luck in the drawing!
