A score to settle
Today is a day for character development, and especially for Teresa. She is going to be the devil in disguise, or maybe not.
We get to meet her when Quinn picked her out of a list of prospective candidates for partnering our main character, despite the fact he says he prefers to work alone.
Of course, the reason for that is obvious after the last mishap and the fact that the partner was killed. Before that, he didn’t have a problem, but now, the idea of someone getting killed on his watch is not something he wants.
But, he doesn’t know he’s getting a partner. She’ll be turning up on his doorstep, and he will not be in a position to refuse.
She is currently residing in a prison, well, that has something to do with an errant husband who some would say got what he deserved.
Is she innocent? Not everyone in prison is, despite what they say, and she never protested her innocence.
Quinn wants her on the team for two reasons, she is very dangerous, especially skilled in killing, but controllable, and more importantly, to keep our main character guessing why she is there.
Is she a bad girl from the wrong side of the tracks, or labelled such for so-called bad deeds?
It’s time to get on that particular roller coaster.
