A decaying body that had been left along an Indiana roadside ditch in 1980 had finally been identified as Janice Hartman.

A romantic thriller series. Updates at http://writerkristenjames.com/stranger-series/ Teaser: “You have a tattoo?” He pulls the shirt back off in one motion and sits on my side of the bed. Between his shoulder blades, there’s a set of wings with a dagger of some kind in front of it. I graze my fingers over it, making him shiver. His response makes me pull my hand back. “It’s okay.” He throws a look over his shoulder at me. We’re so close I can smell the scent of his skin—it makes me want to lean in and nuzzle my face. It’s a strange, fleeting feeling. A real feeling, though. That part feels good. “This looks like…a military tattoo.” “Got it in the Air Force,” he says like it’s common knowledge. “Oh… I know you don’t know, but it keeps happening. I have to stop and remember that you don’t remember.” “It’s not the Air Force emblem,” I say, almost to myself. It’s very close, though. Here and now, I remind myself, but still I wonder about it. “No, my own take on it. I liked the wing concept. That I can fly away.” Lower on his side, the one tilted away from me, I spot a scar and lean over to look. It’s five inches long and thick. “How did this happen?” I run my finger down it, but my heart thumps hard enough to hurt. It’s from a knife wound. “Oh, that’s not from my service. I jumped out of a tree when I was twelve and a branch had a sharp point. It cut pretty deep.” It looks like it’s not that old, and I’m sure it was a knife. I feel lightheaded suddenly. Am I creating an image of an open wound in his back or remembering it?
