However, she soon discovers it was a double-cross, and the jewellery she was hired to steal nothing more than bait in a trap.

The houses owner has no intention of turning her new prisoner over to the police, though -- and when the Shadow discovers the mind-controlling effect of the womans pearls, shes forced to struggle to regain her freedom.The only question is whether or not thats what her body -- and her mind -- need most...EXTRACT:The Shadow’s body moved like a marionette pulled by invisible strings. No matter how much she tried to fight it, she felt her knees buckle and her entire body slump to the ground.

It was as though all of her muscles had just given up, replacing the stress and tension of her instinctive fight-or-flight reaction with a warm feeling of comfort and relaxation.‘What... what just happened?’ she said. ‘What did you do to me?’The woman ignored her. ‘The reason I bought Marcus in is because I think you might have a certain... shall we say, professional involvement?’ she said. ‘Marcus, sweetie... tell this mouthy little slut what your name used to be before you came to work here.’When he spoke up, his voice was light and distant, as though he was talking in his sleep.

‘People used to call me the Ghost, Mistress,’ he said. His voice had a faint foreign tinge to it – European with a British education, and a good one at that.The Ghost.She knew that name. He had been one of the big players on the scene for years, rumoured to be a Russian gentleman thief who stole what he wanted for the sheer thrill of it.

There was no job too big for the Ghost, as long as it was interesting enough to catch his attention.A few months earlier he had disappeared. Rumour was that he had retired, or been arrested – perhaps even killed during a job that went wrong – but somewhat unusually when to one of their own going down, people on the street had nothing much in the way of hard information.

The police loved to gloat about capturing a high-profile criminal, and cat burglars had a glamour about them that kept the newspapers happy, but with the Ghost there was nothing. It was as though he had just disappeared.Except he had been captured, plainly: just not by the police.‘Ah yes,’ the woman said. ‘“The Ghost.” What silly little nicknames you all like to give to yourselves.’ She ran her fingers down Marcus’s arm, teasing him with her touch. ‘You see, Marcus here thought he could do just what you’re doing. He heard that I had something of incredible value, and he just couldn’t resist trying to get his greedy little hands on it.

Isn’t that right, boy?’‘Yes, Mistress.’‘And of course, greedy little boys have to be punished for taking things that don’t belong to them. I knew what the pearls did by that point, of course. I just didn’t know how to turn it to my advantage.

Marcus showed me the way. I should thank him, I suppose – not that I think I need to. Really, I’ve done him a favour.’The Shadow spoke up for the first time in what felt like an eternity. Her voice cracked like ice after the first thaw as she did so, but she fought to keep it steady. ‘How do you figure?’‘Oh, he’s so much happier now.

He doesn’t have to worry about being caught or captured. All he has to focus his little mind on is how best to please me.
