Excerpt from Runaway at Sea

Michael drained his water glass and leaned forward. “What are you doing staying at a pimp hotel?”

“Pimp hotel? I guess that explains the secret staircase off the closet.”

“No, it probably led down to a gambling room in the twenties. Most of the old hotels downtown still have them. Do your parents know you’re here in the city?”

I shook my head.

“How did I know that? You always were a rebel. I remember the time you were about four and arrived on our doorstep with your suitcase. Said you were running away from home.”
