A Simple Job
Manozzi looked at the gun in his hand then down at the bleeding body on the ground. It was supposed to be a simple job. A huge payout. A way to get out of the life.
“Just step into the closet,” the egghead had said. “Count to fifty, step out, and kill the first man you see. Don’t hesitate. Just do it. Then step back in the closet, count to fifty, and you’ll be back.”
Manozzi thought it was insane. He doubted every word. But he did as he was told.
And now he was dying at his own feet.
