“Murders like this stuck to your heart like barnacles to the hull of a ship. You just knew they changed you, knew they had to, even without knowing how or how much.”
“So you’d rather have a can of beer with a bowl of pork rinds and your feet dangling out of the back of John Boy’s pickup?”
Maddie started eating Reese’s Pieces, “I’d rather snack on a man, but they don’t come in a bag you can pop in your purse for later.
The night chill climbed her cheeks to draw the moisture from her eyes.
Dink came toward me sucking on a straw stuck into a soda cup the size of a desert canteen. I recognized him from his white socks and toe-out stride developed through a lifetime of being pudgy plus.
“I’ve considered getting a three-line summary printed on a T-shirt: Cop. Divorced. Horney.”
