Everybody has their breaking point. For Sandy, a waitress at an all-night diner, her breaking point might be tonight. A slick crook in a shiny Camaro picks her up from work. But Sandy's luck means this guy is up to no good. Will Sandy, the thin little blonde with three-inch heels, finally snap? A short suspense thriller about two crooks and the woman who is somehow caught between them.

About Matt Phillips

I'm a writer living in San Diego. I was born in Palm Springs, California and grew up in the Coachella Valley and nearby High Desert. Lots of dirt, cacti, and sunlight out there.

After working for ten years as a bartender and waiter, I went back to school and got a BA in mass communication from North Carolina Central University. I edited the award-winning Campus Echo student newspaper. My fiction has appeared in Flash Fiction Offensive, Powder Burn Flash, WeirdYear and the Scratch Anthology. I've made or written films which have appeared in the Hayti Heritage Film Festival, PollyGrind Film Festival in Las Vegas and the DVXuser Film Festival.

I like bourbon, beer, bad-ass dialog and stories with guns in them.

Good quick read.I prefer stories with an ending I don't have to supply, but that is personal preference and does not reflect on the writers ability or quality of the story.

Gritty, yet compelling, characters. The author has a great grasp on the suspense/crime genre, so much so that my heart started beating fast toward the end, as I had no clue what to expect. His writing is unpredictable, something I appreciate. Don't miss out on this guy's talent!

Another reviewer mentioned dangling participles. Looks like that's been fixed because I didn't see any.

Review by: Martin Peltz on June 22, 2014 :
Talented, gritty, the scene and atmosphere are set very well.
What I also like is that the reader is given room to complete the picture.

I think it would be easy to get this genre wrong; but Phillips has nailed it!
