My six are, once again, from Sin City Hunter, the third book in the Susan Hunter Mystery series.
Susan plays a game of racquetball with a man she believes is behind a murder. Showing no mercy, she wins the game 15-0. My six are from the final few minutes of the game:
I set for the serve and blasted the ball hard down the left side. Carl lunged for the ball, missed, and fell onto the court. I heard a cheer go up from the other side of the glass, but it was quickly quelled by someone, probably Mr. Diamond.
Carl scrambled to his feet, and with his back to the glass so no one would see what he was saying, he hissed, “You’re going to be sorry you did this in front of all of these people.”
Rather than to cower and be frightened, he had snapped my last nerve, and I had more anger than fear. I stood close to him so no one would see what I was saying, and I hissed back at him, “I know what you did.”
Anyone can join in. To participate and/or check out some other great sets of six, check out the site: http://www.sixsunday.com/

Sounds like an intense game.
The game was intense in the book, and it is in real life, too. 🙂 Thank you for stopping by and reading my six!
Ooh! Love it!
Thanks for reading my six and commenting! 🙂
She is scary when fired up! Just like you?
It’s frightening how much of my own personality has been put into Susan’s character, but she is definitely more brave.
I’ve just started the new “weak word edit” on this book, and will definitely be reworking this six. It’s a good scene that can use some stronger words. 🙂
Love it! Bah on weak words!
I am asked how much my main character is me. At first I said none. Upon reflection, I have to say tons!
Sounds like Susan can hold her own!
She has a lot of spunk! Thank you for reading my six. 🙂
