Hypocrite…new writing, unedited, incomplete…

My hope that the walk from the strip mall to the police station would calm Lilly down failed. She burst through the door of the murder room. Her eyes fired daggers at me, the awkward silence grew between us. Chief Janko had walked out to where I sat, but upon seeing Lilly, he decided toContinue reading “Hypocrite…new writing, unedited, incomplete…”

Hypocrite…a continuation…unedited…

The county morgue sat on the outskirts of town. Rumor had it that the founders of the town, way back in 1890, decided to store the undead outside of the town limits…just in case they decided to wake up and walk around.  So far, none felt the need to stretch their legs. I pulled theContinue reading “Hypocrite…a continuation…unedited…”

0900 Tuesday: Lilly stood next to the unmarked sedan wearing a blue blazer, a crème-colored blouse, and blue slacks. Her black shoes were sensible. Konan thought she was the most beautiful woman in the world. Her brown hair was tied back into a tight bun. The Smith and Wesson 9mm attached to her hip, andContinue reading “Hypocrite…new writing, unedited…incomplete…”

Fredericksburg Police Department sat catty-corner from the main town square. Three stories high, it served all law enforcement needs in one building. Homicide was found on the second floor; it took the entire floor to hold all the personnel dedicated to solving various murders in the surrounding area.  Konan and Lilly had their desk inContinue reading “Hypocrite…new writing, unedited…”

Lilly finished with the first officer on scene and walked over to where I stood. She crossed her arms; her green eyes bore into mine.  “Well?” “Mr. Figueroa had his head bashed in by multiple blows. He reeked of gasoline. Tammy is going to do the full battery of tests and an in-depth autopsy. We’veContinue reading “Hypocrite…new writing, unedited, incomplete…”

Hypocrite…A new Thermopolis Konan/Lilly Thompson mystery…unedited and incomplete…

Lilly stood outside under a large maple tree. Yellow ticker tape was stretched around the crime scene, various officers and crime scene specialists dotted the area looking for clues.  “Morning, Thermopolis. We’ve got a doozy this time around.” “Oh yeah? What’s it going to be this time, a suicide squad of vegans gone wild? OrContinue reading “Hypocrite…A new Thermopolis Konan/Lilly Thompson mystery…unedited and incomplete…”

The beginning of Hypocrite…unedited…

As I sipped my coffee, I was overcome by a familiar sensation of having been here before, a sense of déjà vu I believe it’s called, it was not an unwelcome feeling, just a familiar one. I write, so emotions are part of the job. Feelings are too.  Even in the middle of the nightContinue reading “The beginning of Hypocrite…unedited…”

Rhianna’s Chalice…new writing, unedited…

“Wow. The end of the world doesn’t concern you but throw some worthless money into the equation and suddenly you’re willing to fight for a lost cause.” “Yep. I’ll live like a king until the consuming fire falls and the Dwarves are turned to cannibals.” Hekla shook her head in disgust. “I thought I knewContinue reading “Rhianna’s Chalice…new writing, unedited…”

Rhianna’s Chalice…new piece of writing…unedited…

Jayce glared at Hekla and Tomak as they entered the room. Taber laughed.  “The look on your face, human. You’re truly funny.” “Hekla. I didn’t expect to see you so soon.” “Well, these things happen.” “What do you want?” “I want to tell you a story.” “No thanks. I think I’ll just leave.” “No human,Continue reading “Rhianna’s Chalice…new piece of writing…unedited…”

Rhianna’s Tearful Chalice…new writing, unedited…incomplete…

His choice to separate from Hekla had nothing to do with greed, nor did it pertain to her decision to protect her friend. It had to do with the fact that he needed total commitment.  He did not doubt that Hekla would stand beside him in a fierce melee, or if the need arose. However,Continue reading “Rhianna’s Tearful Chalice…new writing, unedited…incomplete…”
