"Going Across Jordan" by James Lee Burke in The Best American Mystery Stories 2014

His trousers were hitched up so you could see the thickness of his penis against his leg. He signed autographs with a grin at the corner of his mouth but glanced at his watch like he had to get on the road in the next few seconds. Even in the gloaming of the day, his eyes were blue orbs that had the brilliance of silk when they settled on a young girl's face. I had to clear my mouth and spit. ... From The Best American Mystery Stories 2014.
