The Murder of Leopold Beckenbauer:

Danny drove me to McClureville the Sunday before Leopold Beckenbauer was murdered. He didn’t have to do it, what with me asking for a separation and all, but he’s always been kind like that. He really does deserve someone better than me.
Asheville was thick with fog when we left that morning, and I felt as if the opaqueness were wafting into my brain, making me dull headed. Luckily, Danny didn’t say much until we crossed over into South Carolina, but when he did speak he trod over the same ground we had been covering for the past month. I watched as the trenches got deeper.
“Claire. I don’t want this. You know that, right?”
An eighteen-wheeler whizzed past. What could I say that I hadn’t already said?
