Die Like a Dog, by David Alexander (epub/Kindle/pdf)
"I want to get this written down on paper fast, while there's still some Sneaky Pete in the bottle, just in case my hand gets shaky and I need it. Not that I'm stooling, understand. When you're a wino on Skid Row you don't holler copper. But this is different from steeling the shoes off a mission stiff or jack-rolling a lush. This is murder."
