Luke gave him a look of dry reproach. ” “You’ve got a point,” Roan answered on a dutiful laugh. “I’ll look into the situation, but there’s not much else I can do without April’s cooperation. ” Luke meant that exactly as it sounded. ” “Who he is, whether he has a record, how much of a threat he appears to be. ” Luke repeated as his cousin paused. “Somebody should keep an eye on April.
