Crossing the Line, by Stephen Jay Schwartz
#20: “Crossing the Line” by Stephen Jay Schwartz
Synopsis: Bad vice cop fucks women, gets worse.
“They lurked in the shadows in an unmarked car, watching the undercovers swinging their hips like pendulums, like meat magnets, drawing johns toward them from the boulevard.”
I really wanted this to be a better story than it turned out to be. The mood of the piece is fantastic and dark, and the protagonist seems interesting. But the plot went nowhere. I finished the story and was literally like, “Wait…THAT’S IT?” So sad.
“Crossing the Line” used to be available in the Kindle store. I’m not sure what’s happened there.
