Derek Derek lifted the large plastic tub, which he had just filled with ice, level with the counter, dumped the ice into the stainless steel container, and sighed.

He bent down low with a much-practiced 'bowling' motion and sent the plastic tub whizzing down the tiled corridor into the dish room where it hit the surly dishwasher o...

Yet there are somewhat unrealistic tones, which I noticed some time after reading the book, because my first impression was how incredibly realistic it ...
