What you're about to see is part of the reason why.
For reasons that will become apparent within the book itself, Amanda hasn't exactly been keeping close tabs on Marco, or his dealings in San Francisco. But she has concluded that she needs to come back, and protect him.
She's going to discover that Marco has not exactly been acting normal ... normal for Marco, anyway.
I should remind people that presales for Live and Let Bite ARE CURRENTLY UP AND RUNNING.

Oh yes, and for the record, when Amanda arrives in San Francisco, she finds one of Marco's people doing something stupid.
The attacker almost went down, but quickly adjusted to the injured leg. He whirled on Marco, backhanding him. Marco had met the strike with both forearms, then grabbed the offending hand. He dug his thumbs into the back of the hand, with his fingers digging into the palm. Grip established, he twisted the arm, and the sound it made was like very loud Rice Krispies.
