Murder never goes as planned. That’s what you think as you stare at the body beside your feet. Despite all the blood, despite the deep gashes in his abdomen, despite all that, Brian Peterson is still moving in a jerky, awkward way that makes you feel all wrong inside, as if you’re watching something very private. You look away. The other times it wasn’t like this. With the first one, Jayson Olivet, he just stopped moving, all very graciously anticlimactic. You expected blood, screams, a struggle, but all you got was a small gasp and then a man collapsing, and then lying glassy-eyed, staring past you toward a faraway spot somewhere beyond the ceiling.

I love espionage, legal, and detective thrillers but listen to most genres. Very frequent reviews. No plot spoilers! Please excuse my typos!
As a Steven James fan I decided to give this 27 minute short story about murder a try. It is simply terrific; it is also very dark. It was a well spent 27 minutes. I highly recommend this short story.
