Urban Shorts – four modern-day stories of mystery, suspense, and crime … collected here for just 99 cents!
by John Urban
Here’s the set-up:
“Junior Jameson” Extreme wealth, corporate excess, and a crime that takes the reader from New York to Antigua and back.
“Courtesy Call” A locally grown police officer patrols his home community on what was to be a quiet summer evening.
“The Association” Retirement life in Stuart-by-the-Sea is quiet and dull. Or at least it was until now.
“Halfway Rock” Urban’s protagonist, Steve Decatur, sets out in a water-borne chase on the stormy waters of Buzzards Bay.
“Devil’s Bridge” An opening except of a new Steve Decatur mystery involving modern day slave trafficking that draws historical echoes from the days of the early 1800s when ships from Newport and Bristol, Rhode Island sailed the Triangle Trade.
“I found all four of the stories varied and interesting and I have to say I enjoyed reading them. This doesn’t mean that I’m going on a short story reading frenzy anytime soon, but if John comes out with another story collection in the future I’ll probably pick them up. Besides, how can you beat four stories for 99 cents.“
