A-to-Z Noir

“A down and out gumshoe, a couple of femme fatales and a rising tally of dead bodies. Detective Jack Murphy just wants to make a little dough but he’ll settle for getting through this challenge alive!”

What Women Want (or ‘The Mystery of the Riddle Inside an Enigma’)

Pandora’s Box Without any historical or sociological proof, I would like to put forward the theory that the story of Pandora’s Box was written by a man (possibly recently married) who made the mistake of trying to understand his female companion’s wants and needs. The fact is, the man who can tell you with certainty…

Creation

In the beginning there was Nothing and then there was Something. It seems strange to me that this is the thing on which both science and religion want to agree: there was nothing, and then there was a “big bang” or a God spoke the words saying, “Let there be light.” Either way, the silence was…

Coming Back. It’s been a while since I’ve written in this blog… But I’ve certainly been writing. In 2014 I took part with in the #AtoZChallenge. With no idea going in, I got caught up in telling a fast and fun story that was as much a surprise to me as to the few who…

Alpha Dog

Chapter 1 Alcohol. It always ended up here and here’s where things often began as well, sitting in a dimly lit bar with a broken heart, empty pockets and relying on the generosity of Sal, the bartender, which was the equivalent to really having no prospects at all. It was a never ending cycle and…

Bombshells

Chapter 2 Blondes. They always spelled trouble. I could tell the one standing in the middle of my office was no different; with those bored baby blues and the way she couldn’t move from window, to desk, and finally to chair, without first making sure her hips got a good look around. I had been…

Cat’s Pajamas

Chapter 3 Customers. In most businesses you needed them. The P.I. business is no different. But every now and then there was the feeling you’d be better off without one. The blonde sending up smoke signals in my office was a case in point. She struck me as too wise to truly believe that a…

Dead Men Don’t Dine

Chapter 4 Delilah. She had thought her sugar daddy, Lionel Tucker, was on the slow train to La-La Land, checked in with a ticket bought by a jealous wife. On the face of it the truth seemed a lot simpler: Lionel had got tired of his jelly on the side, decided to change up the…

Everybody Loses

Chapter 5 “Elsewhere.” It was the thought going through my mind because it was exactly where I wanted to be: Anywhere but here. The fat man’s body sat heavy in the chair and he could have been sleeping, the way his head lolled back all slack-jawed, and his arms hung. Only no one would sleep…
