The Naked Beat


"If you're blackmailing Harrigan then why are you running?" he asked, probably trying to stall her from shooting him until I could join the party.

"Because I believe Chief Harrigan's devotion to his duty has finally surpassed his fear of me. But I keep my word. I will be making this evidence public."

She picked up the suitcase and started out the double doors of the drawing room. She turned back and pointed the gun at Jeffrey.
I pulled the gun I'd bummed off of Harrigan, stepped up behind her, and pressed the end of the barrel to her temple...

    Shooting her in the head is too easy, Jake. You should make her suffer first for all the evil she's meted out over the years. Maybe you should tie her up and call Harrigan. It was him who caused the problem in the first place, he must ultimately solve it, so you can be buddies again! But then Jeffrey might plug Harrigan for revenge, having little more to lose than his life... Shut up, Neville!
