Every agent on his team was talented, even gifted, but Hotcher knew that Reid – with his triple PhDs in Chemistry, Mathematics, and Engineering from CalTech – was a special case, and very likely the most brilliant of them all. The young man had an eidetic memory, and a 187 IQ with a capacity to read twenty thousand words a minute. More important, the wealth of data at the agent’s mental fingertips had over time interwoven with his ever-growing profiling skills. No question, Reid was a key asset to Hotchner’s team.
There is no art on the walls, no sign of what might be art unless chipped paint counts. And, to be honest, I couldn’t care less. My stomach rages for more and I’m only happy to oblige it. I realize that I haven’t eaten in over a day and I don’t know when I’ll be eating again after this, so I’m determined to gorge myself on this free meal. I barely notice when the chatter in the room falls to a hush.
It’s only when my buffet companion stops eating and looks up with amazement that I turn around to see what all the fuss is about. Nothing could have prepared me for the sight that stood before me.
A man shuffles into sight from behind a pillar. His head is down but I can still see his striking face, frozen in a pensive expression. Exotic tattoos cover his forearms and torso. He’s tall, gorgeous, and completely naked.
And his eyes are on me.
