Summary: Who the hell let Gene sing?
“And now, the end is near…”
Not near enough, Sam thought. Karaoke was twenty years in the future, but someone had given Gene too much booze and a microphone, with inevitably horrifying results.
He wasn’t sure what the party was about or for whom, just that he was trapped at a banquet table listening to Gene crucify a song that Sam had never liked much to start with.
“For what is a man? What has he got?”
Sam found himself smiling. The song was perfect. How the hell did Gene Hunt do every bloody thing under the sun?
