Racked by Jude Hardin and J.A. Konrath is a short story, about 45 pages long and available at Amazon for only 99 cents.
A private investigator, a police lieutenant, and a man wearing a Bugs Bunny mask walk into a bar... Unfortunately, it's no joke when Bugsy rigs the barrel of a twelve-gauge pump to the back of the bartender's neck.
Together for the first time in this explosive, lightning-paced tale of greed, betrayal, and blood-soaked terror (not really, but it's a fast-paced and funny mystery-thriller), Florida PI Nicholas Colt (Crosscut, Key Death) and Chicago cop Jacqueline Daniels (Whiskey Sour, Shaken) team up to stop the robber before another shotgun shell gets RACKED.
Very excited for Jude Hardin. Visit his webpage for more Nicholas Colt stories. And I'm also excited to say that 2 of the 16 upcoming releases will feature my psychic detective, AJ Rakowski. BTW, note the cover art - fantastic! My stories (Abductions and Beatings - with Confessions almost ready to submit) will boast similarly excellent covers. When they're ready for display, I'll let you know.
