A collection of tales with a unique twist, crime stories readable in one sitting.

The author developed the idea of this novel based on a narrator telling several short stories while traveling from Las Vegas to Los Angeles. The author, Darlien Breeze, said, “My flight often ended just about the time a story reached a place where I hated to put it down.” Each chapter in this book is a stand-alone short story. The reader doesn’t have to wait for the flight back home to find out “who done it.” Each tale is held together by a crime, one in which the narrator is involved.
The author developed these stories from three main sources, news articles, tidbits of info gleaned from overheard conversations and her vivid imagination.

Many of the stories contained here were developed as the result of my life’s experiences. A few are pure fantasy while others were created from the headlines of the daily newspaper. Some of my stories were developed rather quickly when I considered a plot or an outline of how a story should read and others took years to create just the right feel. Either way, I always get excited when I have a new story. I know that part of writing is knowing your audience. I envision my audience of readers to be about fun, intrigue and mystery. I hope that my readers have as much fun reading these stories as I had writing them.
