Probably my creepiest work to date. This story more or less stands alone but is excerpted from my upcoming novel "Stages of the Con" the second Harry Parnes book.
Career sex offender and murderer Max Panuber like to drive around naked in his ’72 Chevy Impala. He also likes young girls. And young boys. And farm animals, and just about anything else he can hit, eat, cut, rub, snort, shoot, drink, or have sex with.
After committing a heinous crime back East he rolls into Mesa Rock New Mexico where he parks his Air Stream trailer and finds 17 year old Alexandra working the night shift at Mag’s 24/7 Roadside Diner. It’s love at first sight of Alexandra, and love at first bite of “Pie”. Or as Max would say “Paaah”.
Harry Parnes and campaign manager Danny Bishop are in the middle of Harry’s Mayoral campaign but must take time out to save Alexandra. When the law fails, sometimes you just have to take matters into your own hands.
