Short fiction with contemporary urban settings, well-drawn characters, and engaging plots. Perfect for commuting or reading in one sitting. These are "novelette" length works -- between 10,000 and 20,000 words -- longer than a short story, but shorter than a novella. Read them all!
A failed screenwriter turned private detective has his life turned upside-down when he’s talked into stealing MacGuffin, an unusual memento, from the home of one of Hollywood’s most infamous directors. Set in present-day Baltimore, Stealing MacGuffin pays homage to the likes of Dashiell Hammett and the hard-boiled detective story, while at the same time spoofing Hollywood both past and present.
