Four wicked stories ...

Street Crimes ebook

Street Crimes ebook

These are four excellently written, well-paced, suspenseful and entertaining stories! I thought all of them had a noir feel to them (as defined by film noir - emphasis on "cynical attitudes and sexual motivations"), even though the last three take place in contemporary times. "Mistake Proof" took an unexpected turn as the main character decided to hide in an asylum and that may or may not have been the best idea. "Rare Justice" was a touching tale and a nice introduction to Jillian Varela, a tough, principled, female (woot!) PI who gets the job done no matter what the obstacles. Her approach to detective work through dedication and hard work is encouraging to see, and especially so when it pays off. "Hollywood Hitman" was a fun piece, where people get what they deserve in unexpected ways. "The Game's End" was another good showcase for Jillian Varela's character as she works to prove the innocence of a naive girl charged with murder.

These four stories are absorbing reads and perfect for a short dose of mystery and suspense in the midst of our busy lives.

  1. I used to enjoy writing stories, mostly about fantasy and adventure and my influences were writers like Roald Dahl, J.K. Rowling, C.S. Lewis and Brian Jacques and I often thought about becoming an author myself. But after a while, I started to realise that becoming an author is not as possible as I thought because I was often told that trying to get a book published is very difficult and writing is a lot harder than I thought. Like I now see my stories as being cliché and predictable and I feel like I don't really have any talent for writing because I can't think of anything clever or original or creative. I'd like to get back into writing again, but like I said it's not as easy as it looks and I often feel like if none of my books or stories are going to get published then there's not much point in writing them because nobody's going to want to read it.
