You all are in for an amazing treat today. I asked Chris Almeida and Cecilia Aubrey if I could interview Trevor and Cassandra from their Countermeasure Series. And, well, not only did they say yes, but Trevor and Cassandra made the trip to my house for it. Hope you enjoy their visit as much as I did!

The flight from New York to Chicago had been smooth considering the inclement winter weather ravaging the US East Coast. Massive snowflakes zoomed onto the windshield creating a warp speed feeling as they drove the rental SUV down I-57 S toward their final destination. Trevor thumped his thumbs on the wheel to the tunes of their favorite playlist while Cassandra read one of her novels. Trevor glanced at Cassandra and her relaxed expression put him at ease once again. It felt good to travel for pleasure instead of the crazy jobs they had thrown their way.
Almost three hours later, they drove through the small town in Central Illinois. The sun peeked through the clouds and sunshine glistened over the thick layer of snow that blanketed the surrounding fields. Everything looked white and pristine as they turned into what appeared to be a fairly new subdivision. A minute later, Trevor stopped in front of a lovely bungalow style house. The driveway and path to the front porch had been carefully shoveled; a sign the residents had been home although no vehicle stood on the driveway.
Trevor scanned the house for movement and seeing none turned to Cassandra who had her e-reader open and eyes glued to the screen. “Are you sure we have the right address?”
