LES CANNIBALES, a crime novella by DeLeon DeMicoli. It was a four-man job. Steal top shelf art. The gunmen stick to the plan until bloodshed is imminent. It’s dog-eat-dog as the men plan their escape. More
During a robbery, Blinky sees police activity down the street. His crew assumes cops have the art gallery surrounded, unaware of their true presence, which is responding to a car accident that has left one man dead. The thieves shoot at responding officers and take hostages. When Detective Reynolds arrives on the scene, he identifies the dead man involved in the car accident. This becomes his main lead to hunt down the thieves’ true identities and work out a peaceful resolution before S.W.A.T moves in.
Each thief has a story explaining why he chose to take the job. Inky is a con artist repaying an old debt, Blinky is a stuntman in need of quick cash, Pinky is an enforcer that’s looking to move up in the ranks and Clyde is a sociopath / art aficionado that loves to steal. When S.W.A.T teams get the “go-ahead” to overtake the gallery, it’s dog-eat-dog as the gunmen plan their escape.
