Some with torn, bloody clothes, some I couldn't tell had been wounded at all, but I could see from the road that they all shared the same, milky-white eyes. I shuttered at the sight, feeling more desperate to get going.


Not an uncommon one, but it shouldn't be there in a published book.

'Mr. Oxford?' Mrs. Earl said again, this time meeting me at the door. She leaned into my ear, staring into my eyes at the same time. 'What's going on?'

I walked past the large woman in the gurney, looking nervous and upset. Her hand was bandaged, but a large area was saturated with blood. I remembered her from the ER and wondered where her family was. They had all been with her downstairs.

Patrick blushed, made an aborted gesture like he was going to snatch the phone back and then straightened looking fiercely determined. "That's part of my personal life and has no bearing on my ability to do my job. I'm a professional; I'm not going to be looking at you with anything other than a clerical eye."

Except all of a sudden Jonny desperately wanted Patrick to be noticing him with the exact opposite of a clerical eye.
