The Urge to Gulp the Cocktail

Thursday, August 16th, 2012

“Clark came in, two Martinis on the tray.  I thanked him.  He handed one to me and one to Leonie, who started to shake her head.  ‘Those are both mine,’ I said . . .  I took a sip of the Martini.  It. Was perfect, like chilled steel.  ‘If you make all Martinis like this one, you will always have a job here if you want it.’  . . . James Bond drank Martinis when he was in a tux and moving in for the kill.  I drank them because my arm was broken and I had badly messed up and I had to think about what to do next.  I fought the urge to gulp the cocktail down.”  The Last Minute by Jeff Abbott

A Strong Choice for a Martini

Friday, August 3rd, 2012

“I slid a Plymouth English Gin martini in front of August, two olives.  Not the most expensive gin but really a strong choice for a martini.  August took a sip and nodded in approval.  I poured another one for myself.”  The Last Minute by Jeff Abbott, 2012.
