First John Devin, PI Short Story Published - Bennie

I've also just published the first John Devin, PI short story - "Bennie."

I love short stories because I can visit a little more with some of my favorite characters and this one, Bennie, first appears in "Red Is For Blood" - and turns out to be Devin's newest best friend.


Bennie - A John Devin, PI Short Story…

Devin is on a fresh case to recover money and bootleg booze belonging to Toots, the owner of Devin’s favorite LA speakeasy.

The money and booze found, he gets a little more than he bargains for.

A case within a case, that leads Devin to his new best friend, and the most foreign land in LA — Chinatown.
