An excerpt from the novel I'm not writing:
Robbing banks isn't my specialty. It isn't a skill I have. It isn't even something I'd done before but here I was. In the first ten seconds Victoria had the place under control with a precision of psychopathic elegance that one could only be impressed with. In the next ten seconds we were in the back pounding open safety deposit box 1277 and hoping it was the right one. We had ten seconds to be right.
