Example text

Some office schmo. Kind of guy that didn’t need to wear a bulletproof vest to work. The city passed him by from inside the car. He’d quit smoking a year ago, but seeing Val always gave him the urge. She’d be tapping her foot at the door right about now, checking the time. He patted himself down, in search of a phantom pack, and felt some bulk in his left jacket pocket. The stiff’s wallet. Shit, thought he’d passed it to the squad. Swing around first thing in the morning, drop it off. Daddy’s on his way, Jack.

He took a deep drag of cool air. Felt like he was filled with helium, hovering over the scene. Dizzy. Just tired, yeah, that must be it. Hell, he’d seen plenty of nasty things. Dead and dying, rotting corpses. But not like this one, only saw this once before. Thoughts of his original destination came back to him. His son. Jack. Shit. What time was it? Almost ten o’clock. Christ. As soon as the ambulance reached the hospital, the medics marked the chart DOA. They’d ship the body off to the morgue.

Swing around first thing in the morning, drop it off. Daddy’s on his way, Jack. Two hours late for his little boy. But hey, better late than dead. [3] Gavotte Saturday, March 21 This was one of Ren’s favorite calls. Rich couple on the Upper East Side, dabblers in voyeuristic sex. A regular engagement that had helped pay the rent for a number of years. It had been a predictable gig, courteous and civilized. Like fucking friends. But as with most ménage à trois, it had turned into a rather competitive triangle.
