Here is an excerpt taken from the book:
Chip walked over and sat down in a wicker chair next to his friend. It was difficult to see Bob’s face in the darkness as the only light that reflected on the porch was from a streetlight a half block away. He knew his friend was feeling his booze. He drank beer all afternoon and then switched to gin and tonic.
