1 Ed Eagle sat at his breakfast table and watched his new wife, Susannah Wilde, cook his breakfast. He was a lucky man, he thought. She set down two plates of huevos rancheros and joined him. “What are you doing today?” he asked. He was concerned that she might become bored, and he didn’t want that. “I’m having lunch with a producer I worked with a few years back, Dan Karman. You remember that novel I bought a few weeks ago?” “Yes, sure.” “Danny’s written a screenplay based on it, and we’re going to talk about shooting it in Santa Fe.” Susannah was a well-known actress. “Sounds great,” Eagle replied, and he meant it. He didn’t want her spending a lot of time in L.A., shooting a movie. “What are you up to?” Susannah asked. “The usual. I’m having a first meeting with a man who’s been charged with murdering his wife. It happened early this morning.” “You meet such nice people in your work,” she said. “Oh, this one’s quite a nice fellow, I’m told, and he might even be innocent.” “I thought all your clients were innocent.” “He’s not my client yet,” Eagle replied. “If he’s not innocent now, he will be by the end of the day.” Susannah laughed. “That’s my Ed,” she said, pouring him a second cup of coffee. “Do you remember a film producer named James Long

About the Author
Stuart Woods was born on January 9, 1938 in Manchester, Georgia. He graduated from the University of Georgia with a BA in Sociology. Woods worked in the advertising business and eventually wrote two non-fiction books before being given an advance to write a novel he had been pondering for nearly a decade.Woods' first novel, Chiefs, was published in March 1981. The story was inspired by a police chief's badge Woods had found in his grandmother's home. The badge was stained with blood and pockmarked by buckshot. It had belonged to his grandfather, who died wearing it 10 years before Mr. Woods was born. Chiefs won an Edgar Award and was made into a TV miniseries starring Charlton Heston. Woods has published a number of books since. Woods has published forty-one novels in a twenty-eight year career, and has now had twenty-six consecutive New York Times best sellers.
