Genre: Cozy (?)
Rating: 4 WaterTowers (Three rednecks driving to Memphis to save a friend)
Bailey was working in Memphis when he got hurt and sent to the hospital. The details of his condition were varied, but, the town-folk of Box Hill, Mississippi were sure of one thing….he needed blood.
Volunteering to drive 2 hours to Memphis, Wayne “Aggie” Agnor, Calvin Marr, and Roger Tucker drove off with food and money and gas.
What follows is a terrifically surprising short story (all of 44 pages long) filled with booze, sex, shotguns, pistols, gang fights, a barroom brawl, beer, lap dances, naked women….all the things you would expect from three rednecks on a drive to help save their friend.
