Joshua O’Shea, five-eleven in his bare feet, thirty-one years old, a white man wearing nothing but an open shirt stumbled into his girlfriend’s apartment. He stared at Lindsay Bolton in her short nightgown, legs that reached way up.
Lindsay, face-to-face with a man she didn’t recognise standing naked from the waist down inside her living-room, said, “Derek, come out here.”
‘Who the fuck are you?’ Joshua said. “Where’s Sandra?”
Lindsay hesitated, and waited for her husband to come out of the bedroom. ‘What’re you doing with the bat?’ she said.
“Thinking I oughta kill you.”
