Excerpt

 

Warehouse District – South Chicago

On the trail of money, Mickey Blair sniffed out opportunity like most men chased skirts–one led to the other but cash never got a headache.  The piece of paper fluttered in his hand as a brisk wind caught its frayed edge.  He scrolled it with spread fingers to read his own scribbling and looked up, squinting against the cold to verify the warehouse number. The place was a pit.

He stuffed the crumpled paper into his overcoat. He’d hoped for better arrangements from his potential new client.  The email he received late yesterday had been cryptic, but he was confident the job would be simple and the money irresistible.  The best kind of incentive.  A glance at his Rolex assured him he wasn’t late.

With the sun fading into the layers of dark clouds along the horizon, the bite in the air stung his cheeks.  Large, wet flakes accumulated on the ground, defying the swirling gusts.  With a sideways glance, he caught sight of his black Mercedes parked to the left.  His latest toy.  He’d soon have it stored for winter.  Time to break out his SUV.  His work provided a nice little nest egg.  Images of white sand beaches filtered through the cold.  The imagined scent of coconut teased his senses.  He pictured grains of sand clinging to his dark skin slick from tropical oils.  Before long, he’d be set for life.

Killing was a lucrative business.
