The Rattle of Darkness, by Martin Roselius
I am zipping through anthologies as fast as I can, in preparation to declaring my list of best stories of 2012. This nasty little piece is my favorite in the anthology by the Sisters in Crime Desert Sleuths Chapter.
Pancho is a very bad guy who lives near the border in Mexico and helps piece slip through a tunnel to the U.S., for a price. When his debts catch up with him Pancho comes up with a worse way to make more money. And when those deeds catch up with him things turn very dark indeed...
