Example text

After a while, an attractive middle-aged woman in jeans and a turtleneck sweater came through the doors to take Seeley to Leonard's office. Seeley had heard somewhere that cramped quarters were common in biotech, even for senior executives, and Leonard's office was no larger than Seeley's in the Ellicott Square Building. The desk was a slab of blond wood, part of a combination cabinet-bookshelf. The desktop was empty and the bookshelf nearly so. A beefy man in chinos and polo shirt had propped himself against the desk's outer edge, facing the open door.

In the shadow of the overpass, the temperature suddenly dropped ten degrees. Thruway traffic drummed the vaulting concrete. Leonard huddled into his topcoat. “One thing I'll take to the grave with me is the bleakness of this place. ” “And that's why you left New York? Not enough austerity? This city is falling apart, Mike. ” Apart from a terrifying childhood, he and Leonard had little in common. As a boy, Seeley was the explorer, taking his bicycle to every corner of the city while, other than on the occasional family outing, Leonard rarely strayed outside their dark immigrant neighborhood on Buffalo's far east side.

The jury's impression of Vaxtek, what kind of company we are, is what they see when they look at counsel's table. ” Seeley decided not to ask Barnum how many jury cases he'd tried. ” It was cheap tactical point that Seeley regretted as soon as he made it. ” Leonard had come around to the front of his desk. “Mike has a great track record with juries. ” Barnum's eyes hadn't moved from Seeley's. “She runs her own voir dire. ” Seeley reminded himself that he hadn't yet done his research on District Judge Ellen Farnsworth, who would preside at the trial.
