Mac turned his attention to their chauffeur’s tense face. “My boy back there has a Smith and Wesson .500. You ever looked down the barrel of one of those babies? It’s like staring into cannon, leaves a crater the size of a pizza box. He’s got that sucker pressed against the back of your seat and while traveling through all that foam and fabric might slow it down some, that bullet’s still gonna disintegrate a good chunk of your spine and turn your guts into soup.” He twisted the gun against Little Mike’s ribs. “You copy me?”

  4. I like bad good guys, and if I was the driver, I'd be really really scared right now. As it is I'm just turned on because they sound cute.

    Love the six, see you next week.
