Seven Suspenseful Sentence Sunday - Week 6

Kreuzberg back in the day

From The Shadow Warriors
In a sleazy Berlin neighborhood, the narrator ducks out of a bar one jump ahead of a bad guy.
 
Peering around, I realized that I wasn't in the alley, but a courtyard.  Groping along the stone wall in the darkness, I almost fell over a bike rack.  A tenement stood facing the yard, but only a few windows on the upper floors were lighted. A banner with a skull and crossbones hung over one of them. I picked my way across the rubble and ducked around a dumpster. The screech and scream of alley cats, fighting or mating, caused a dog to respond with a deep savage bark.  When I hit my shin against a crate, I sobbed in frustration, wondering how was I going to get out of here. 
The Shadow Warriors is available as a trade paperback AND on the Kindle.   It contains many  suspenseful scenes, and some funny ones, too.  You can find it on Amazon.

Fantastic detail. You have a real knack for setting the scene.
