border lines blog tour


Title: Border Lines
Author: LE Fitzpatrick
Series: Reachers, book #2
“We all remember that kid in Piccadilly. That determined look he had on his face as he willed all those people to him. Just using his mind he pulled them close then blew them all to pieces. It could be anyone. Your neighbour, your friend, your lover. Remain vigilant. Reachers are everywhere.”
When the perfect job comes up Charlie doesn’t think twice about taking it. This is the break he’s been looking for and nobody, not even the rest of his team, can persuade him otherwise.
The job means working for an old enemy and crossing the border into London. Both are risky but Charlie has no idea how high the stakes really are.
The team will have to confront their past, each other and a killer who is closer than they realise. But can they all make it out of the city alive?

BorderLines

~Excerpt~

The Voice had the biggest audience in London, and according to John was the biggest load of bull he'd ever read. A few straggling papers tried to compete, only finding readers in London's most liberal or most extreme. Everyone else bought the Voice, skimmed the headlines, picked up a few typos and filled in the crossword each day before taking the paper down to the recycling bank and getting their gratitude pennies back for the service.

Harvey O'Connor had been editor for six years, taking over from his mother Elaine after her short battle with cancer. There was no love lost between mother and son and when Harvey came to take over the Voice he made no secret of not caring less about the credibility of investigative journalism, the truth, or good writing. He evolved the Voice into a glorified rag–mag, sandwiching propaganda beside DD–cup models just out of school. The step down from highbrow news production was a step up in sales with elitist London showing her true colours, revealing herself as the scandal loving rubberneck she had always been.
The paper was Harvey's beacon, the thing that lit him up around London and he used it to highlight the points people paid him to make. The lucrative set up made Harvey one of the most influential men in the city, but either he was just greedy, or he had some fondness for the editor's chair, whatever the reason he still worked in his office day and night manipulating the news for his own advantage personally.
Charlie took in the building in front of him. The Voice HQ was one of the shiny new buildings they had erected on Bunhill Road. If a building could be arrogant then this one had the self–importance of an overpaid footballer. A news scroll ran nonsensical headlines while a larger screen flickered images of celebrities who had dared to go out without waxing and the new super fruit accused of giving people cancer. Periodically a woman came on screen and announced to anyone within half a mile: the Voice, speaking to the people for the people.
A heavy dusk blanket had fallen over the city. The night was thick and dense. It was hot and a wet heat was steaming off the pavement. Slowly London was turning in for the evening, taking a brief respite before the night life erupted in the darkness. The three of them stood in the shadows of the old graveyard across the street, watching the clock run down. To get into the building they had to pass through metal detectors and a dedicated security team. If the dupi's didn't set off the alarms John's arsenal would.
Charlie flexed the muscles in his shoulders and settled himself onto his crutch. He glanced at John, he was his usual self; focused and calm. If he had any doubts about the plan they weren't bothering him. Rachel was more nervous. But then the whole plan was riding on her powers. She reached for John's hand and gave him an apprehensive nod.
"See you on the other side," Charlie said to them and turned around.
