Hey there, crime kids. Happy Monday. It's time once again to take a trip to the dark side, where your most violent fantasies become sins of the flesh, right here, where the hardboiled action is non-stop, at the coolest crime joint in cyberspace ... at That Killing Feeling.
In Chapter 21 of BABY HEISTER, in the aftermath of killing the double-crossers AND undercover officer Ray Stark, teenage heister Kelsey Hazard and the gang torch the hideout and hit the road. Meanwhile, robbery/homicide chief Darryl Rooker brings on board Flint Cole, a crazed, borderline pyscho cop, and orders him to 'go fucking nuts' ...
EXT. TILLY’S JOINT - DAY
Kelsey RIPS a sign off the side
of the Roto-Helper truck.
It now reads CRIME SCENE BUSTERS.
INT. POLICE HEADQUARTERS - OFFICE - DAY
Chief Detective Darryl Rooker sits behind his desk.
Looks really pissed off.
Sips a mug of coffee.
Went off without a hitch.
Not a shot was fired.
Guards were tied, gagged
and stuffed in a truck.
Whole thing went down
in a couple of minutes.
Standing nearby holding a
bottle of water is another COP.
Sounds like a Doc Hazard special to me.
Meet FLINT COLE (40’s), ex Marine.
Now a bit fleshy. Crazy eyes.
Does the undercover thing a little too well.
You can practically smell him on the page.
But he’s still the best.
I want you to get your ass
over to Palm Springs.
I thought Willis was on that.
I think he might have been
the victim of foul play.
Got too close?
Either that, or he went
to the dark side and got burned.
Which is why you called me.
Well, you’re off suspension.
Cleared of all charges.
And you’ve got a bit of a
reputation for --
My unorthodox methods?
Yeah, well -- you get results.
The department has been after
Doc Hazard and his crew
for over twenty years.
They’ve cost the taxpayers
millions of dollars.
You get where I’m going with this?
In other words,
you want me to blow the lid off?
I want you to go fucking nuts.
And that’s an order.
Flint CRUSHES the bottle.
CRACK. Water EXPLODES.
Let’s fucking rock.
EXT. TILLY’S JOINT - DAY
Doc and Kelsey sit in the truck.
See flames of fire licking
the edges of the windows
on the first floor of the house.
Reno and Dusty dash out the front door.
Run to the truck.
Jump in the back.
Doc turns around.
Looks at them.
You got the barn, too?
(off his nod, to Kelsey)
Kelsey turns the ignition.
Starts going down the driveway.
EXPLODES IN A BALL OF FIRE -- BOOM.
Debris goes FLYING.
Turns looks out the window.
What the --
Little trick I learned.
Hot water heater in the basement.
Put the bodies right next to it.
A HUMAN HAND
Lands on the windshield with a SLAP.
EXT. DOC’S FARMHOUSE - FRONT PORCH - AT THAT MOMENT
Jo comes out the front door.
Looks natty in a black men’s suit.
She goes down the steps,
on a mission, walks toward --
EXT. DOC’S BARN - DAY
A massive, two-story affair.
Jo walks over to the big doors.
IN THE BARN
Jo SNAPS on the lights,
revealing a giant, two-story room.
Bales of hay sits against the far wall.
She grabs a pitchfork. STABS it.
TOSSES IT with surprising strength.
INT. DOC’S BARN - A LITTLE LATER
The front portion of the
bales of hay is now gone,
revealing a pair of doors.
She unlocks them. Steps inside --
A HIDDEN COMPARTMENT
Where we see a big vehicle covered with a tarp.
She grabs the front end. YANKS it off,
revealing -- a CADILLAC HEARSE.
