“Are you going to tell me about it, Junior?”
“About what how dumb I was, d’you mean? Sure, I’ll tell you about it. I forgot for a minute that Miami, like any other city, is a dangerous place. I didn’t take my gun to the store, not even my sap. Not only that, I broke my own rule, and I tried to help someone else instead of looking after my own ass. This straight life we’ve been leading has given me a misplaced sense of security, that’s all. For a moment there, I must’ve thought I was some kind of solid citizen. That’s all.”
“But what happened to you?”
“Two guys in a blue Impala ran over me.”
Susan nodded but looked thoughtful. “I thought it must’ve been something like that.”
I loved this Charles Willeford novel, the first book in the Hoke Mosely series, but didn’t care for the 1990 George Armitage movie, even though it featured some nice Jennifer Jason Leigh nudity. You a fan of either? What did you think?
