(Belated) Crime Fiction Friday: “Dead Pimp in a Trunk” by Paul D. Brazill

Let’s face it, with a title like this, it was hard to ignore this story Shotgun Honey put out a little over a week ago.  It also contains this vivid sentence –

“She was old, in her ‘80s, or something like that, carrying a sawn-off shotgun and wearing a ragged green-velvet ball gown.”

“Dead Pimp in a Trunk” by Paul D. Brazill

“I was going to tell you about why I killed Lewis Quad and how he’d had it coming to him. How he’d asked for it and deserved everything he got. Tell you what an evil bastard he was and how many lives he’d destroyed over the years. All the shitty little things he’d done just because he could. Justify my actions, and the like. But then I realised that, well, if you knew Lewis Quad you’d know all of that anyway and if you didn’t know Lewis there was no way in heaven, hell or purgatory that I was ever going to be able to explain the whole thing to you. So I thought I’d just tell you what happened next.”
