Snippet From Book 3:
For the last hour his gut had been eating at his insides. Like a dose of battery acid scalding his flesh, he could feel his stomach as it scratched with claws of anxiety. Over and over he told himself, “I shouldn’t have lost my temper.” He glanced though the back window of his black pickup truck and fixed his irritated eyes on the flower patterns of the shower curtain lying on the Rhino liner. It was too late to hope it was just a dream or some kind of a stupid mistake; the body was still there, she was not coming back to life. Quickly, he returned his stare to the windshield. Wouldn’t be good if I got stopped by some bored Highway Patrolman.
The light mist was letting up as he zipped past a roadside rest stop. A few eighteen wheelers were pulled over and four or five small cars were parked next to the outhouses, but no patrol cars. Small sheets of water shot up from the back of his truck as he continued heading east on Highway 10. Herschel Mead could feel his heart racing as he spotted the sign indicating he was about to enter Death Valley; it was his destination, and the final stop for Angel Goodgirl, or whatever was her name.
