The man舗s features were so distinctive as to make him almost impossible to forget. He looked more like an enforcer than a stealth operative. 舠Do 舗em right this time, shithead,舡 the big man said testily. Rapp was sweaty, dirty, hot as hell, and not used to taking crap from anyone. He had done his pullups correctly. If anyone could be accused of not doing them all the way it would be the very man who was in his face. Rapp was tempted to set the tone and knock the guy on his ass, but he figured there would be plenty of time for that later.
The blow was so solid Hurley nearly let go, but something told him if he did, he would lose, so he hung on for dear life and finally toppled the kid. Hurley was on top of him. He found a wrist and jammed his thumb into the pressure point while maneuvering the rest of his body into position for an arm bar. He rolled off and delivered a scissor kick to the throat of his opponent that under the rules was not exactly fair, but neither was their business. The kick barely missed, but Hurley had his opponent舗s wrist in both hands now and was ready to lean back and cantilever the kid舗s damn arm until he hyperextended the elbow.
Rapp asked. 舠Not sure,舡 Kennedy said as she put the car in park. 舠He舗s older than he looks, though, but I wouldn舗t bring it up. 舡 She unbuckled her seatbelt. 舡 Kennedy exited the vehicle and walked casually across the gravel driveway. She was wearing black dress slacks and a white blouse. Due to the heat and the fact that they were more than a hundred miles from headquarters, she舗d left her suit jacket in the backseat. A 9-mm Beretta pistol was on her right hip, more to avoid a tongue-lashing from the man she was about to face than from any real fear that she舗d have to use it.
