Stealing Lloyd  
Dec. 21, 2016
Author:  Patrick Melroy
Category:  Fiction: Mystery/Crime
Description:  Career criminal and serial dater Lloyd organizes a crew to rob the largest mall the night after Black Friday in 1989. He plans to rob every store in the vast thriving mall in one night. His long time mentor and partner in crime Ravi supports his plan and embraces Lloyd's attempts to meet a quality intelligent woman that he can settle down with and leave the racket. Which is why when a brilliant beautiful woman Lloyd has been pursuing shows up moments before the beginning of the heist, Ravi encourages Lloyd to take the woman out, into the closed mall. Lloyd proceeds to take the woman Kim on the date of her life, under the guise of being mall management, moving through the darkened mall doing all the things one would dream of doing if they had the freedom. Meanwhile the gang of thieves steal their way through the mall using the tied up security guards keys to open all the stores. Lloyd keeps his date running just ahead of his crew, they ride the carousel, make their own hot dog on a stick, drive the Zamboni at the ice rink, even watch nothing but trailers in the movie theater. The night seems to be going off without a hitch until one of the security guards wives brings him a midnight snack. The heist falls apart around them and they flee all except Lloyd and Kim who reveals her day job as a detective with the local police department. She must decide between her job and the man who just gave her the best night of her life.
