An excerpt from the first page of “Cal McDonald: Detective Tales”:
“Hendricks was bleeding to death by the time I reached him near the intersection of sewer tunnels. He’d had his side ripped out like a bite out of a melon. His upper and lower intestines were splashed on the cement like vomited Udon noodles.
He didn’t have long.
The thing had gotten to him.
I was on my own, in the sewers, against one of the freakiest things I’d ever encountered, and all I had was a Glock with a single cartridge and a shotgun with two shells.
But as usual, I’m getting ahead of myself. I suppose I should start from the beginning…”
