Jaymee went back to scrubbing the table. Her fingernails dug into the Formica. “Detective Charles had more questions for me. He offered a ride, I took it.”
“You like taking rides, don’t you?”
“What are you talking about now?”
“Day you found the body, you got picked up by the town whore.”
Jaymee laughed. “Why do you care, anyway?”
“Your name’s being tossed around with a whore’s and a dead woman’s. You’ve already embarrassed us enough. Now our family name’s being desecrated by your lifestyle.”
“And what lifestyle would that be?” Jaymee whipped around to face him. His crooked mouth warped into a sneer, and she felt the familiar stab in her heart. Why did he hate her so much? She couldn’t remember a time when he didn’t look at her with scorn.
“Living out there with the damned city trash. I’m sure you’re in the same line of work as your friend. After all, once you’ve allowed your body to be used, what’s the difference? Might as well make some money off it, right?”
“That’s enough, Paul,” Gereau said. “You wanted to know why she came to work in the police car. You got your answers. Let’s leave before this escalates further.”
She’d heard this all before. The repetitiveness should have dulled the pain, but the words sliced through the layers of armor Jaymee had built around her heart. Her lips shook as her eyes began to fill. Then she saw the corner of her father’s lips perk up. Bastard. He was enjoying this. She chewed back the sob and responded with as much venom as she could muster.
“I don’t prostitute. Not that you care.”
“I don’t. I gave up on you a long time ago. But I won’t allow you to drag my family back into the mud. You almost gave me a heart attack back then. Trying to kill me now?”
“All I did was tell the church what a hypocrite you are. But one day, Dad,” Jaymee emphasized the word with thick sarcasm, “the truth will come out. Life has a way of making things right. Don’t you agree, Reverend Gereau?”
Gereau took a step back as though Jaymee pushed him. Deep creases lined his forehead as he searched her face, presumably looking for forgiveness.
She didn’t have any left.

What the reviewers are saying about TIN GOD:
“Stacy Green has written an emotionally charged, thought-provoking and stunning mystery/suspense that will capture and hold you hostage until the last page is read. Set in the small tourist town of Roselea, Mississippi, the decisions and consequences of the past emerge and threaten to immerse this community in murder and uncertainty.”
