The First Cut by John Kenyon

James gets a job delivering organs for transplant, but needs to make a little detour first. Lenny's appreciation for the comedy of Steve Martin gets him out of a tight jam. Tommy has some secrets buried in the back yard, and they don't seem to want to stay there. Rick's reunion with an old college roommate ends in gunplay.

In these stories, John Kenyon looks at the people who are usually content to hide under rocks. But when you pull the rock away for a look, that's when the trouble begins. You won't find buckets of blood here, nor twisted hillbillies with arsenals that would give a militiaman pause. No, what we have here is more dangerous, more sinister: stories filled with the kind of people we encounter every day. They live check to check and the last one came two weeks ago. They have been under the thumb of the man for a long time, and just decided they've had enough. They seek redemption when the world isn't ready to provide it.
