About the Book (Excerpts & Info):
At his car, he shuffled her into the passenger side, hustled around, and got behind the wheel. He jammed the barrel of the Browning into her ear.
She cried out.
"Don't make me use this," he said, laying the pistol in his lap.
Her ear was throbbing and ringing at the same time but she still heard the thump as he auto-locked the doors. He started the car, put it in gear, and eased away from the curb. He flipped on the wipers and they sluiced away the mist. As they drove, the wipers lulled and almost hypnotized her.
Thump-thump. Thump-thump.
They drove for about twenty minutes and once they were off the main highway, she leaned forward and squinted through the windshield at a caution sign:
Orange barrels with their flickering caution lights did little to affect the black hole darkness. Rows of red and white striped sawhorses funneled them along until they veered off onto a two-lane blacktop.
Hess looked over, ran a lizard tongue over his lips, saying, "You are so beautiful. You look just like Mother."
Nikki closed her eyes, didn't respond.
"You ignoring me? Didn't you hear me tell you that you're beautiful?"
Her eyes flew open and she looked down at gnarled, ugly fingers moving in slow motion, fondling the inside of her thigh. Filthy nails, bitten to the quick, tipped his fingers. His hand felt like a diseased vermin paw, even through her jeans. Recoiling, she closed her eyes again.
He put his hand back on the wheel and pulled off the blacktop, onto the shoulder. He left the ignition on. The wipers continued: Thump-thump.
(Chapter 51)
