Two women meet for the first time over coffee in a San Francisco hotel. Each has come to satisfy her curiosity. One wants to learn how this mysterious woman on a holiday from Mexico knew her husband. The other wants to know what became of the boy she met on a beach as a teenager. In the course of their conversation, long-kept secrets will be revealed. This short story features characters from Scott R. Larson’s three Dallas Green novels: Maximilian and Carlotta Are Dead, Lautaro’s Spear, and Searching for Cunégonde. Set two years after the end of the novels, “Rendezvous” will inform readers of certain things about which Dallas, narrator of the novels, was ignorant. Indeed, readers’ understanding of particular events will be irrevocably altered.
