Six short crime stories ranging from hard to soft, with varying shades of danger and mayhem:
ICE-CREAM & AURELIE: a young man growing up in New York finds ice-cream parlors have an attraction all of their own... but that some things are not as sweet as they seem.
SOMETHING TO TRADE: a woman stranded out in the African bush has to use her wit to survive an encounter with violent rebels
THE HOMECOMING: a spy whose cover has been blown returns home. But what sort of reception will she receive?
PRETTY HOT T'ING: forced by a ruthless south London gangster to deliver a bomb, a young man finds that some things are worth risking everything for.
PET HATE: a young woman enters the world of shady deals and creatures that bite.
A GIRL THING: a female police officer goes undercover to trap a sex-trade gang... and discovers talents she didn't know she had.
But that'snot all...
If you like the idea of short crime fiction, there's also a Volume 2 - which is at at the ridiculous price of £0.77 or $0.99. (But, hey - a writer's gotta eat!)
