Rogues: Bent Twig

By Joe R Lansdale. 

Couldn’t have more of a different tone from the previous story. This one is all smart mouthed world weary detective noir set in modern Texas. The dialogue is really interesting, and full of colour. No idea if folk really speak like that as my knowledge is based almost entirely in Smokey and the Bandit. 

Also, properly violent. Tarantino violent. 

This story displays the thug end of the rogue spectrum, with wit and vigour. Makes you wince though. Gaming wise there are possibilities for Unknown Armies or modern Cthulhu what with the corrupted church stuff. The protagonists do actually behave like PCs, so perhaps lift the plot for a short one off.
