Welcome to the Party

A Vincent Bayonne Short Story
A BODY IN THE SNOW.
AN ANGRY MOB.
PROTECT AND SERVE WHOM?
Patrol Officer Vincent Bayonne is an apolitical Vietnam vet still adjusting to life stateside.
Bayonne has no interest in helping a sheltered politician who only cares about blazing a campaign trail, but when Bayonne and his partner discover a body in the snow and realize a blizzard stranded them at the VFW, they have no choice but to protect the seedy candidate from a neighborhood mob interested in booze and belly laughs at the party’s expense.
One naive aristocrat, two cops, a frozen junkie, and a mess of savvy locals mix a volatile cocktail.
