I like the way Pulp Fiction, 11:14, and Lost wove/weave their stories. Back and forth, up and down, like a roller coaster (with deference to Ms Clarkson) without regard for the linear progression of time. That style influenced the writing in The Rising. The story doesn't start at point A and move directly to point Z. It's more like beginning at point C, flipping back to A, ahead to E, then back to D. It's not as confusing as it sounds and it allows characters to be better developed while keeping the story short. In this excerpt, our good buddy Mike Hudson makes the acquaintance of a lady we have already met. This encounter occurs well into the book, but describes a scene that happened before the war.
