This is a short tale of horror, it reminds me of stories one could listen to on radio years ago at night which could chill your bones. Robbing a bank is never easy, especially when silent alarms are used. James Straley had about $400 grand, but he's lost his crew... except for one, who tried to steal the money from him. Well, a shot to Kelso's head stopped him. His car dies on a back country road. As he walks along with the duffle bag heavy on his back, he comes across an accident that has just happened. Both drivers appear dead, but one car is usable. The body in the Caprice is covered in blood and gruesome looking. His skin appears to have been melted off his face. James carefully drags Caprice man out of the car and rolls him into the roadside ditch. But as James stumbles and falls onto the body, the man grabs his wrist, and is still breathing. James leaves him there, thinking he won't last for long. He wipes the blood and tissue out of the driver's seat the best he can and heads toward Oregon. At a rest stop he cleans up a bit, travels to the next town, buys some clothes and a '92 Honda Civic with his cash. He returns to the Caprice and sets it on fire. Now, James' hand is burning, and not from the burning Caprice. The man must have been contagious and James hopes to make it to Oregon where he can get medical care...with no questions asked. This is a spooky story, and I'd love to hear the audio book version...it is a haunting tale one will not forget. It's well written as all of Simon Wood's books are. Simon originally wrote this story using the name, Simon Janus.
