From Riley Adams Doubles Down 

Mattie looked at her in disbelief. “Reynard Novak is a vampire?!”

Riley nodded. “Yeah, and pretty powerful one at that. He’s been riling up all the local vampire gangs which has not made my job easy the last couple of weeks so I’d really like him out of my city. And you know, the illegal casino thing isn’t good either,” Riley added, seeing the look on Mattie’s face.

“Why didn’t anyone tell me Novak is a vampire? Doesn’t the FBI know?”

“Oh they probably know, they just don’t like to admit these kinds of things are real.”

Mattie rolled her eyes. “Leave it to a government agency to deny the obvious.”

“Right,” Riley said with a laugh. “How about we get out of here?”

When they were outside in the fresh air, Mattie picked the conversation back up again. “What do you say we team up on this one, Adams? I could use your expertise and we’d be helping each other out.”

Riley grinned. “The two of us back in action together? Novak won’t know what hit him.”

Mattie returned the grin as her phone rang. She pulled it out and answered, “Cervantez.” After listening for a moment she said, “Right. Be there soon.” When she hung up, she turned back to Riley and Betty. “That was my partner. He says he found something so I’d better go meet up with him. Why don’t we get together for dinner tonight?”

“Yeah, that would be great,” Riley replied. “I can’t wait to finish catching up. Bring your partner and I’ll bring my team. How does eight and Hannigan’s sound?”

“Sounds good but what’s a Hannigan’s?”

“Only the place with the best burgers in H City.”

“Sounds even better. See you then!”
