Sample text:

The blonde in my dream was gone and the one on the phone wasn’t talking  —  that is, if she was blonde. I wanted her to be. I was about to hang up when a rusty breathy voice floated out like sunset clouds.

“Mister Angel, are you there? This is Julia Gateswood, Congressman Henry Gateswood’s wife. Can you hear me?”

5:15 a.m. Maybe that’s the proper time for Congressmen’s wives to call. “Soon to be Senator Gateswood?”

“The same. You’re Mike Angel, aren’t you?”

I was. Cold light above the drapes hinted morning, but my mind fought the reality. “You’ve interrupted a fascinating dream. Are you blonde?” I was still treading slumber.
