Last Boomer Lit for a While

set the night on firefeatured


Here’s another excerpt from Set The Night on Fire, an example of Boomer Lit. In it, two characters, Rain and Dar, are seeing each for the first time since the late Sixties. They’re talking about another person they lived with back then. Remember, this is a thriller.

Rain opened her eyes. “You need to watch your back, okay? You remember what we used to think about Teddy?”
“What you used to think.”
“Listen to me. About fifteen years ago I got a package in the mail.”
Dar looked over, interested.
“Small. Carefully wrapped. No return address. Just a note with it that said, ‘You were right.’” She paused. “Took me a while to figure out who sent it and what it meant.”
“It was from Payton. And it contains something that . . . well, it has to do with Teddy.”
She shook her head. “Not here. Not now. But it’s important, and it’s in a safe place. If anything—ever—happens to me, you need to know that.”
“Still the theatrical one.” He smiled. “The Sixties are over, Rain.”
Her gaze hardened. “You can’t tell me you haven’t thought about it over the years.”
“I’ve had forty years to think about everything.”
“Yeah, well, a month or so after I got the package, Payton had that fatal car ‘accident.’”
Dar laid his fork down.
“Like I said, watch your back.”
