On the prowl? Take a short walk down a dark street.

More links to what’s fresh, what’s famous, and what’s fiendish in short mystery and crime fiction.

Short sample:

Success and fame had always been a crapshoot, but a man’s life ought to boil down to more than the contents of a suitcase in Tijuana. From “The List” by Loren D.
