Excerpt


There was a dead body in the next room and it was my fault.

     For a while, I stayed in the room with the body. The TV set was on. President Clinton’s face filled the screen. He was taking questions from reporters and they seemed to be having a heated exchange. The sound on the TV was turned off.

     I couldn’t stop looking at the corpse. What had I done?

     When I couldn’t stand it anymore I went into the kitchen. My heart jumped around in my chest like it wanted to leap out and flop around on the floor.

     The cops were on their way. I thought about running but they’d find me. There was no escape. I had to face the music.

     I’d made a mess of my life in just two years. How was that possible?
