A Grace deHaviland bounty hunter short story from crime writer David DeLee, author of Fatal Destiny and Pin Money
Meet Jacob Rowe. If not for bad luck, he’d have no luck at all.
He’s just lost his job. His car’s been repossessed. And his girlfriend just dumped him.
All he wants to do is hang out in Stoddard Cemetery and drown his sorrows in cheap whiskey. So naturally, that’s when he sees a friggin’ ghost.
Too bad seeing a ghost is only the start of his troubles.
A fun, little Halloween story from crime fiction writer David DeLee, author of the Grace deHaviland Bounty Hunter and Nick Lafferty thriller series.
