I'm currently reading "Savage Gulf" by Clay Stafford. "Savage Gulf" is just one of the short stories found in Killer Nashville Noir: Cold Blooded, an anthology written by Killer Nashville alumni and edited by Clay.
The dreaded high school reunion sets the stage for this story. Jack has not done well with life after high school. His business is about to go bust, his wife is cheating on him, and he's about to get soaked in a divorce. So why come to a reunion? Jack has a plan.
