Bourbon On The Rocks #27

by

Tiffany Cross finished her song to loud applause. She smiled and took a bow. I turned back to the bar to down the last of my bourbon and I could feel that someone had come up behind me. I turned back to see a small man flanked by two guys that looked like mountains with legs. The little guy in the middle had on a gray suit with a gray vest over a white shirt and a black tie. His black hair was slicked back and greasy.

I knew I was getting my first look at notorious gangster Bobby Diamond..

    Grey for ‘gray’ Neville according to my UK spellcheck?

    Yes Steve, but Christopher’s using the US version which is different to ours, on account of being a US citizen!

    Good, I've been waiting for Mr Diamond to make an appearance! Still top quality, Christopher :)

    Thanks, guys.

    Drew, Diamond is a featured character, so this is just the first appearance.

    Yeah, we use both spellings of gray here but I've always used the one with a. But I get that Steve was taking the piss out of Neville with that!

    You’re right, Christopher, Steve does have a tendency to take the piss out of me, but I try to give as good as I get. It doesn’t always work like that though 😕

    How did you guess? Sorry Neville! With the story wrapped in such compelling Californian atmosphere how could the author not be from any other source?
