Excerpt from The Traveling Man:

 

Tom stepped out of the Escalade with a nine-millimeter pistol down at his side. “Don’t be overdramatic, Bernie. Nobody’s life is going to be ruined. Unless you don’t let go of her.”

Bernie dropped his arms. His comb-over had fallen down in his face. He raked it back into place. “You’re a despicable bastard.”

“But I keep my word. We paid you to perform a service. You stick to your end, you’ll come out okay.” He turned to Patty. “You all right?”

“He didn’t hurt me.” Patty put the blackmail DVD back in her shoulder bag. “It’s not personal, Bernie. We’ve got no reason to hurt you if you don’t hurt us.”

“I deserve more money.”

Tom put the pistol into the waistband at the back of his pants. “I get it. You thought you’d get some more cash and another fuck or two before everything was done. Now you found out you’ve been out-negotiated and your feelings are hurt.” He shrugged. “You’re just going to have to get over it.”

“The DVD?”

“When we leave town, we’ll erase the original and smash the copies. We sure don’t want to attract any attention to this deal.”

“Goddamn bullshit.”

“Give us the copy of the environmental report and file the original. We’ll do everything we can to get out of town as soon as possible.”

Bernie went back to his truck. When he opened the door, the light came on inside. Tom and Patty watched him reach down into the floor.

Tom pulled the pistol back out of his waistband. “You come out of that truck with anything other than the report, you’re going in the lake.”

Bernie turned toward them with a fat file folder in his hand. “You’re crazy, you know that? Point that gun away. I’m a family man. I don’t want to get in no gunfight.”

Tom held the gun down along his leg. Patty took the file from Bernie. “I just don’t believe in taking chances,” Tom said. “That’s the most important thing you want to remember about me.”
