  • The Love Of The Crime Series - The Beginning

    My father use to tell me to never forget the small things in life, you never know when it will drift away into the darkness. I had wasted many aimless nights sitting in a dark lit room, lighting up and drinking the last sips inside the bottle. It was o...

  • Modus Operandi

    The machines silently hummed as if to greet the two intrepid intruders. Henry quickly scanned the room and motioned Marion to follow him. The metal steps clanged once and the sound reverberated through the large server room. They should really soundpro...

  • Crime of Passion?

  • One way trip

    Some can fly. Some can read your mind or tell you who wins the game next week. Some lift thousands of pounds with one hand, or outrun bullets. Pure energy shooting from fingertips, sound wave compression and manipulation, shape shifting. The list goes...

  • Fixing - Part One

    This city. This fucking city. I hate it, I really do but it’s where I have to work. Not your average daily grind type of job, but work all the same. I have to hunt. You see, the police in this city, they’re scared. Too scared to go after th...

  • Why I Was Arrested

    So, it all started when I was in a club dancing with a girl. Well, more of a woman than a girl, really. A mature lady. And dancing probably isn’t the right term. More like flailing. And when I say ‘with’, I mean in the general proximi...

  • Bird's Nest Surprise

    I mulled the whole sorry story as I slouched my way to the flophouse’s sad door. The botched gig was supposed to be a cinch, a real eggs in the coffee job. At least, that’s the tune Stuyvesant had been singing. I had known better, of course...

  • Allegro con anima

    I watch him until he passes the Vaughan building. Stupid mook gets what he deserves, running out like that after getting just a taste. At least he’s keeping the big boy occupied. I take the rest of the boys down into the vault right as the charge...

  • A Long Drop

    There’s nothing like spandex to ruin your day. Nah, I don’t mean Europeans in Speedos or my wife’s surprise visit to the kink shop, and I know they save us plenty of trouble. But so help me, I’ll take a thirty-car pileup on 42nd...

  • Big enough

    “How much deeper?” Cole asked. “Another foot,” I said. “I need a break.” He tossed down the shovel, climbed out. “Hurry up. Sooner we finish, sooner we’re outta here.” “Poor Lou,” he sai...

  • Fat People

    Fat people are hard to kidnap. The operation had always been straightforward, wait until the right moment, approach, open doors, introduce to the van, leave. Not this time. The minister of Economy will attend the reception in Cuernavaca. We considered ...

  • The Package

    The aroma of body odour, stale beer and urine consumed the air within the Floater Arms bar. Three fifty watt bulbs illuminated the room in a dull orange glow, casting light over the barman sat on an old wooden stool, shuffling through a deck of cards. ...

    It was raining. Rain was the only time the organization heads met. Too dangerous in clear weather. Joey was a nobody. Just another grunt hired for security. No one should be bother the organization today, not in this part of town. It would be easy mone...
