The attack came in low, but he was prepared for it. He easily evaded what might have been a lethal blow with a feint to the right, and then, in a move as precise and disciplined as a classical dancer's, spun left and caught his opponent in midfollow-through, squarely behind the knees. The attacker, expecting a death-dealing blow to the throat or sternum, went down like a sack of rocks. Down, but far from out. Corbett Lazlo had little time to enjoy his moment of triumph. Before he could deal a follow-up blow, his assailant arched his body like a bow and was on his feet again, circling in a half crouch, his eyes hard as bullets, a slight smile playing over his lips. Corbett stood at ease, balanced on the balls of his feet, smiling back. It wasn't a nice smile. The next strike came like lightning, and, even though he'd been prepared for it, delivered a glancing blow to Corbett's ribs. There would be a bruise tomorrow. He went down, exaggerating the effects of the injury, and when the follow-through came, he rolled and twisted his body like a fighting cat and came up on top, his opponent pinned with Corbett's knee against his throat.

Corbett grinned back, an expression that transformed his austere features in a way that sent a jolt of desire through the woman watching from the screened-off doorway of the dojo. To Lucia Cordez the jolt was a familiar sensation, as was the ache of longing that came with it. Corbett Lazlo had been the most important person in her life for nearly ten years, but in so many ways he was still a mystery to herlike smoke, she sometimes thought. Visible and real, but emotionally elusive, impossible to grasp. Careful to keep her feelings well-hidden, she stepped around the carved wood screen and made her own obeisance to the master as he passed her on his way out. "Ahthere you are." Corbett's features had settled once more into lines resembling those commonly found on ancient Roman coins. It was his customary expression when looking at herimperious, impersonalaloof. "You have news for me, I assume? Might I hope it's good news for a change? Tell me you've traced the source of the e-mails that have been threatening me with so many ingeniously hideous deaths." His tone was light, even a bit sardonic. Lucia shuddered and said faintly, "Corbett, please."
