Another excerpt from my recently released 'His Leading Lady' with the first meeting between Jess and Kyle. This is a continuation from last week when Kyle told Jess her sister had disappeared, the week before rehearsals were due to start for the West End Show in which Lora had the lead role.
“She’s probably gone away for a holiday somewhere before rehearsals start next week,” Jess said, more calmly than she felt. “I’m sure she’ll be back in London for those, wherever she’s gone.”
“She’d better be back before then.”
A bolt of alarm shot through her at the implied threat in Kyle Drummond’s voice. “Why?”
“Because, Ms. Harper, she’s under contract for various appearances as part of the advance publicity, and one of those happens to be the day after tomorrow, so perhaps now you understand why I’ve been trying to find her.”
More next week!
