Overhead, above the alley where he was parked, he could hear a man and a woman arguing in the unit on the top deck of the wooden tenement. The man stepped out onto the porch and stood in the shadows, reeling gently. He was hugely fat.

“The man with the shotgun lifted it to his shoulder and steadied it. The fat man looked down and saw him. ‘Please. Put down your gun,’ said the man with the shotgun.

“The fat man looked puzzled. An instant later, the look was gone, and so was the face, blasted into nothingness. The headless body pitched forward over the porch rail and fell into a snowbank.

“There were sirens. The man with the shotgun began to move quickly. He bent down next to the body and plunged the dead man’s hands deep into the snow.

“He was walking back to his squad car when his backup arrived.”
