This story was written for my friend Joe Konrath’s anthology, THESE GUNS FOR HIRE (Bleak House, 2007).

This short story was first published in 2000 in Blue Murder Magazine, which has since disappeared. It was reprinted in Twilight Tales’ Blood and Doughnuts, and most recently in the ONCE UPON A CRIME ANTHOLOGY edited by Gary Bush. An “only in Chicago” story, it’s goofy and noir at the same time.
