Enjoy an exclusive excerpt from Lee Clark Zumpe’s “When Shadows Scream”

Durward skulked in the lobby until Byron had disappeared into the parking lot.

Satisfied, he darted back down the corridor and retrieved his harvest from the dirty linen cart. As he plucked the bag from the mound of soiled sheets and sweat-soaked gowns, its contents resumed a fierce struggle, thrashing and clawing at the canvas.

With newly found energy, it vented its plea for freedom in a shrill, bone-chilling screech that echoed throughout the facility.

“Scream all you want. No one here is listening.” Durward slung the wriggling sack over his shoulder.

He started toward the door that led to the tunnels beneath Alameda – toward the old depository he had discovered years ago. He paused outside Room 11. Darnell Jordan waited for him. Durward wondered if he dared perform a second excision in one night. Rarely did he have such an opportunity. Rarely did he have the benefit of complete privacy. It had taken him weeks to collect from the gentleman in Room 13.

Glancing at his wristwatch, he decided to chance it. His Masters would reward him generously. His contributions would accelerate their venture, hasten their arrival.

As the door to Room 11 closed behind Durward, Byron punched in the code on the keypad at the lobby door, waited for the buzzer to sound and crept back in to the building to retrieve his keys. Silence and darkness worked in unison to make the interior atmosphere as unsettling as it had ever seemed.
