Some Enchanted NOIR
This short story tribute to the Noir and Hard-boiled genre and eras of crime writing of Vin Packer (Marijane Meeker), Dashiell Hammett and Raymond Chandler comes with an O. Henry twist. Two women, one a detective, the other an apparent felon and fugitive from the law, strike up an edgy romance that leaves one of them short a thousand dollars. But that’s not the problem, is it? By the time she finds out the whys and wherefores of Roberta Blue, Detective Delores “Duke” Avante is also missing a big piece of her heart. Losing a grand starts looking like good news.
