While working on Innocent Dreams I have realized two things:
- I have a very hard time writing about child killers.
- Aislinn Cain should never ever be put in charge of a case, especially when her underlings are Caleb Green, Xavier Reece, and one other (but that’s a surprise for the book). I gave her just a smidge of authority and she’s annoying the crap out of the FBI. Telling people exactly what she thinks all the time, which is sooo not polite. And the three men she’s working with are just letting her do it.
Of course, some of her very dark humor has come out as a result. Caleb and Xavier keep making comments that they aren’t telling her what she can and cannot do. And poor Gabriel is on the opposite side of the country hoping that he doesn’t have to answer a lot of questions to the controlling board of the SCTU by the time they wrap up their case in California and join the others in Maryland.
