Lucy had thought about meeting Daniel again a thousand times, but it had never played out like this. She surprised herself at the ferocious nature of her attack. She was mocking him and she wanted to rise above that, just stick to the facts, but she couldn’t.
“Look,” Daniel spoke again. “I need to talk to you.”
His insistence just wound Lucy up more. “Oh, you need to talk, do you? Now that it suits you, it’s time for a chat? What about all the times when I needed to talk? Where we’re you then? With your new woman? Go and talk to her now if you need a chat.”
“Stop, Lucy. I know you hate me, and I deserve it, but I need to talk to you. You’re in danger. Serious danger.”
Lucy did stop. For a moment. But she hadn’t finished.
“Yes, I’m in danger. In danger of punching you, of kicking your head in.”
Daniel leaned forward, tried to grab her hands. Lucy pulled away, sputtering, and he sighed. But he didn’t lean away.
“Listen, this is about your father. He was murdered. The accident was no accident. And the people who did it are coming after you now.”
Lucy let the words sink in, her mind a confused jumble of conflicting thoughts. She started again on autopilot. “I don’t know what kind of game you’re playing this time, but you are full of shit.”
Daniel looked her straight in the eye, silently commanding her to listen. It was a look she recognized, but one he’d never turned on her.
“I know this sounds crazy, but I’m deadly serious. Your father was working on something classified – Operation Honeydripper. Check it out. His killers think you have information and they’ll stop at nothing to take it from you. I want to help you.”
Lucy could feel her mind coming back, shifting her away from anger, but the rage wasn’t completely subdued.
“You’ve got a nerve coming back here and feeding me this bullshit. You didn’t even know my father. You’re a bastard for bringing him into this mess, putting the blame on him.”
She was shaking as she stood. “I honestly don’t know what I ever saw in you.”
The shaking increased as she marched from the bar but she didn’t look back.

I received this book for free in Exchange for ab honest review.
Some people think that getting a book from the author/publisher means the reviewer will be more lenient but let me assure you that this is not the case for me. Being an author makes me even more demanding than a lot of the readers out there. I mean I know how hard it can be to put a good story together so I tend to be very angry when I get a subpar book. There are two basic reasons for that. First, the writer or editor was lazy or didn’t care about readers. Second, their carelessness makes other authors look bad, mainly indie ones like me.
The Honeydripper Affair is NOT one of those. This is the first book by Joana Kidson that I read but I will definitely be checking out her work. This book has a good pace and the author did a great job of fleshing out the characters so they are believable. Moreover, the story is realistic and engrossing. What else would you ask for in any book but specially a thriller, right? Start reading The Honeydripper Affair immediately if it’s not your bedtime because you won’t want to put it down.
She should never have met up with Ryan, that’s for sure.
You see, Lucy Nevin has got something that people are willing to kill for – she just doesn’t know it….yet.
Handing Ryan the notebook threw the killers off her scent for a while but as Lucy uncovers more details about the death of her father, it becomes clear that this ruthless gang of criminals will stop at nothing to get what they want from her.
And then Dan shows up. Is that coincidence or by design? Either way, she’s now sucked into a deadly game between the killers, the armed forces and the government. They all think that Lucy has the code – the code that will give them control of the internet. The scary thing is; if you’ve ever used the internet, this is happening to you right now.
Trouble is – time is running out for Lucy and she needs answers. What exactly is the Honeydripper Affair?
