Here is a small preview:
As he raced down the metal stair steps behind Egoian’s warehouse, Mijo’s heart hammered in his chest. He had never been more frightened in his life, because he was pretty sure someone had just been killed inside the building, and if he didn’t escape, he would be next. When he reached the ground, heedless of the cold, he raced across the enclosed parking space toward a ten-foot chain-link fence that surrounded the property. There was no alley here, because the parking lot was used only by hovercars, which didn’t need street access.
He hit the fence at a dead run, leaping at the last moment and clutching the chain-link with his fingers. Using his shoes as leverage, he pulled himself toward the top, but when he reached it, there was a problem.
The fence was topped by razor wire.
Fortunately, the razor wire was angled to the outside, which gave him an advantage, but he still couldn’t grip the wire without cutting himself. For several seconds he teetered at the top, trying to find a grip that didn’t include slicing his hands, but before he found it, he heard a shout.
“There he is! The little bastard is getting away!”
He cast a desperate glance over his shoulder and saw two men on the second-floor landing, both in expensive business suits, but no less dangerous for that. One of them started down the steps, but the other braced his feet and took aim with both hands. He was holding a pistol.
Mijo saw the flash a split second before he heard the shot, and a bullet sparked off the top of the fence just inches from his hand.
