There were three of them. Trouble hung over them like a cloud. But trouble was their business.

As they passed the four young men sitting in the booth the last man, a young giant with about as much muscle as a heavy lorry, tripped over an out-thrust toe.

It could have been deliberate. It could have been an accident.

It made no difference. The giant's left hand shot out and grabbed a fistful of leather jacket. Without effort he lifted the struggling young punk off his seat, smashed him in the face with a hard-cutting right and threw him away.

They were trouble. Trouble for Laura, trouble for the police, trouble for anybody who got in their way. Trouble with a capitol T.
