The beaten Chevrolet pickup tailed the car in front too closely. The driver, Eduardo Enriquez, was unaware of the sheriff’s patrol car until he’d heard the sound of the siren whoop at him from behind. He pulled over onto the hard shoulder and tucked the .9mm handgun into his waistband behind his back and leant his elbow on the window seal. Thinking. Six months out on parole with five hundred grams of methamphetamine stashed in the spare tire and in possession of a handgun wouldn’t go down too well if he were caught. He watched the sherif in the rearview.
