Take an inside look on Something Down There with this thrilling excerpt.
Reaching into his pants pocket, he drew out a small leather case attached to a silver chain and dangled it before her eyes.
Karen grabbed it from his hand and looked it over as if she needed to make certain it was real. ìI know I took the damned keys from the car,î she said. All the same, she felt a moment of relief at having a new set in her possession. That relief, however, ended in a flash.
With a powerful leap to a ledge above, Rahm crossed his arms over his chest like a dictator about to make a pronouncement. ìThey wonít do you any good,î he bellowed.
Jeremy swallowed hard, raising a hand to his throat. ìW-what do you mean?î he said, reaching out for something to grab onto. Finding nothing, he spread his legs wide, feet flat on the floor, trying to maintain his balance.
Rahm, aware of the significance of this moment and wanting to ensure that it remained stamped in everyoneís mind, stood tall, chin out. ìWhile you were sleeping last night, I climbed out and drove your car off a bridge. You will not be allowed to leave.î
Karenís hands flew to her face. She began to cry and dropped to one knee. Protectively, Jeremy rushed to her side, encircled her in his arms, and pulled her close. He glared at this insane man, his new enemy, standing above. With hate etched in the dark hollows of his cheeks and in the lines of his furrowed brow, he said, ìWhat do you mean? Why canít we leave? You wonít get away with this!î
Rahm, a leader of few but a leader nonetheless, addressed his flock, gathering with solemnity about the pair, now unofficial members of the tribe, even if against their will. All eyes riveted up.
ìYou canít leave because we need you. That is, we need your babyóthe baby you will have, sooner or later. And yes, we will get away with it. You see, the harnesses are gone, and we dismantled the machinery that lowered you down. You will never be able to find your way out. Donít even try. It would be suicidal.î
Karen stared at her husband, her jaw dropping in disbelief, as the horror of her predicament bore down with jackhammer force into her brain. Unless she and Jeremy were guided out, they were snared, trapped, condemned, damned. Without the candles, lanterns, or torches they couldnít see the tips of their fingers, and even with their carbide lamps they wouldnít know the way through this puzzling maze with its unknown levels and intricate network.
Jeremyís nails dug into his wifeís shoulders. ìDear God,î he wailed. ìWeíre doomed, and itís all my fault. Forgive me, Karen. Please!î
She looked at him blankly, then blinked, her breath coming in staccato bursts, piercing her lungs like wounds from a knife. She began to run blindly, crying, ìLet me die! Let me die!î
