Chapter One: Watched
Kathy began to feel something strange and unfamiliar.
She felt as if she was being followed by someone, and she was used to being followed, but this time she was being followed by a man who was not connected to the agencies she worked with.
She developed this sense in the normal way, in the way that ordinary people might feel like there are eyes on them.
The sense that she was being watched, under observation, followed, it did not come to her from the psychic antenna that was always tuned to such things, and that was the strangest of all.
He left no impression.
She began to recognize the man, to see him out of the corner of her eye while she was walking down the street, or in a line at the store.
His face evoked powerful memories, but the voices within her were silent. They could not offer any details on the man.
His presence sat in her consciousness like the weight on a fishing line, it held steady in the water, there was a hook, but she could not discern it.
She could not read him.
She could not recover a sense of him from the cynergenic field.
He was a mystery.
