BTAP #18: Maker’s and Coke by Jake Hinkson

I didn’t drink that day. I stayed in bed and watched television. The financial markets all around the world were melting down like nuclear reactors. Two twelve year olds in California had raped and killed a sixty-five year old woman. The day before, a jihadist in Afghanistan had thrown himself into a schoolroom full of little girls and killed six of them. In between these horrors, a man came on to tell me that I could be free of sexual dysfunction. Good to know.

This is just a shot from Jake Hinkson's "Maker’s and Coke." Click here to read the full story.

Next week: The Frank Bill Double Bill...

...And then, Scott D. Parker’s thrilling western, “You Don't Get Three Mistakes”

Smooth and deceptively meaty stuff there. Like Maker's itself.

Truth told, I'm really a Knob Creek fan myself.

Good way to put it.

You can never go wrong with Kentucky Bourbon. Makers is in my top 5. I might have to write a short about Knob Creek.....
