Teaser Excerpt from DEATH IN THE DARK
It was pouring rain, and my headlights barely cut the darkness when I rolled across the border between
and Arizona . No one ventured out of the warmly lit hut serving
as border control to check my I.D. They waved from the window at my RV to just
keep driving. So I did. My relief was so intense that once the lights were no
longer visible in my rearview mirror, I had to pull over. I climbed out into
the storm, held my arms out to the side, and cried out into the void, “I made it!” Mexico
“What the fuck are you doing?” Mulberry pulled alongside me, leaning out of his open window, scowling. “Get back in the fucking RV. We’re not there, yet.” He rolled up his window and waited, looking straight ahead into the darkness. I climbed back into the sturdy old RV, and, soaked to the bone, started to drive again.
For three hours, we continued on the same road. Florescent-lit low buildings slid by in the darkness, advertising gas and tacos. My night vision made shadows into monsters, and the empty desert filled with motion. Part of it was the rain, so rare to that region that it seemed to delight in all the open space. Drops fell thick and straight, and then they came from the left, and suddenly from the right. My headlights, like a stagnant spotlight on a troupe of dancers, caught the movements in brief glimpses.
