Asking For Trouble

By Simon Wood

Action & adventure, Crime & mystery, Short stories, Thriller | Paperback, eBook, Audiobook


The road to crime begins with a single decision—the wrong one. Not every decision belongs to the criminally minded. Some belong to the ill-informed, the weak and the plain unlucky. In these tales, trouble isn't an indiscriminate force of nature. It's a manmade occurrence that comes when called upon. In these stories, you'll find Richard who is so tired of supporting his deadbeat in-laws that he's going to cut them out of his life—for good. Jamie Lassen is just Protecting The Innocent when he tells Chris Forbes to stop dating his sister. A simple Fender Bender with a drug dealer's car put Todd in hock with the mob and the kingpin makes Todd responsible for a much larger debt. The Taskmasters picked Matt out just as the right time. Tired of his dead-end life, he was looking for someone to turn his life around. These tales and others prove that Asking for Trouble is a case of good intentions gone bad and bad intentions gone worse. The book features the CWA Dagger Award nominated, Protecting The Innocent.
