Have time for a short story?

If so...

A fan favorite character in the John Pilate Mysteries is Sheriff Morgan Scovill, and in Pilate's 7 it was a joy to bring him back in a sort of prequel to the first book in the series, Pilate's Cross. In the short story Badge, we get a look at the swirling elements surrounding Scovill before John Pilate steps foot into Cross Township.

I hope my reading does the story--and Morgan Scovill--justice. Because he is all about justice...the Cross kind.

If you enjoy this reading, you can pick up the ebook from all the usual suspects, including AmazonBarnes and NobleiBooks, and Smashwords. Thank you for listening.

As a writer of thrillers and murder mysteries, Alex is increasingly hesitant about using gun violence in my stories. The savage, senseless massacres (which the rest of the civilized world cannot understand)--Sandy Hook, in particular--and "accidents" that take place daily in America have reinforced his views on guns. 

He also asks the question: Is violence a "crutch" that writers use too often?
