I'm posting one of my short stories in serial form.
The title is: Wanted - Dead or Deader
Here's the prologue:
These are the reports of a most interesting man—Walter London, Private Investigator. His was a one-man operation from start to finish, with a career that spanned four decades. When he passed away, there was no one to carry on, so the firm closed.
Grandma Elisabeth cared for him throughout his last illness. After he passed, she must’ve felt her duty was over because she joined him three months later.
We discovered all his case notes sealed in boxes in the basement when Dad and I cleared out the house. Grandpa had kept meticulous records. No dry details in his reports, no pesky record of times and locations. Instead he’d written in a sarcastic yet laid-back style. A very private person, Grandpa Walt never violated a client’s trust.
Reading through his reports, I learned a lot about my grandfather and decided to share some of the more tantalizing cases rather than have them lost forever. The players in these stories are either dead and gone; or I’ve changed their names.
