Murder! Too Close To Home

Excerpt from Murder! Too Close To Home
Sliding in behind the driver, the man pulled the door closed and sat back in the warm seat of the car. “I really appreciate this,” the man exclaimed as he took the offered phone, looking back to check on any approaching traffic. He dialed the number, the other party picking up after one ring.
“Yes?” the person on the other end of the call answered in a raspy whisper, “Are you in position?”
The man replied that he was, stating that a lovely couple had allowed him to use their phone as well as giving him shelter in their back seat.
“Well then,” the person on the other end of the call stated, “show me what you got.”
Reaching into his pocket, the man pulled out a gun. Casually, he shot the husband first, then the screaming woman, a shiver of exhilaration running down his spine as he watched the bodies’ slump forward into the dash.
