Alpha Chef

Alpha Chef

Buylink: Amazon & KU
sequel to Alpha Barman

When Greg Mitchelson’s home is torched and his employer killed, Greg fears it's retribution for his past testimony against a notorious drug gang. Alone, with no money and only the clothes on his back, Greg turns to Colm Riordan, the Deputy US Marshall who's protected Greg for the last 3 years. But Riordan doesn’t return Greg’s phone calls, and the local Marshal’s office refuses to help him.
In desperation, Greg goes on the run to Wyoming to find his brother, Mitch, whom he hasn’t seen in over a decade. As he reconnects with his brother, Riordan appears, searching for his missing witness. But Greg needs the answers to a lot of questions before he’ll trust Riordan again. Why didn’t he return Greg’s call? Is Riordan there to help Greg – or kill him?

Teaser: 

Riordan smacked his fist on the table and the mugs jumped. “That’s why I need to protect you, dammit.”
Before Greg could respond, something buzzed past Greg’s left ear and he felt a stinging sensation. “Ow!” Greg flapped at the insect, then he noticed Riordan’s wide-eyed stare. “What?”
“Shit! Get down!” Riordan leapt over the table, knocking Greg over and onto the hard ground.
The air crashed out of Greg’s lungs and he gaped, unable to form words. Having Riordan sprawled over him didn’t help the situation. He’d imagined this exact moment, usually in a bed, not on a dirt floor surrounded by cigarette butts and other trash. Something trickled down the left side of his neck. Finally, his diaphragm worked enough for him to wheeze, “What the—?”
“Stay down!” Riordan snapped. “Someone’s firing at us.”
Greg’s muscles locked in place. “Where?”
“I don’t know. We’re sheltered by the table and the wall, but until I can get a fix on the shooter I don’t know whether it’ll stay that way.” Riordan raised his head and another bullet smacked into the table. “Dammit! We’re trapped.” Greg raised his head and Riordan shoved him down. “What did I tell you?”
Greg gave him a curt nod. “Sorry.”
