Culvert City, a place where bad people do bad things to each other.

hard place, a tough place, it's Killtown USA, Fist City, Murderville
America, whatever you want to call it. Culvert City doesn't have a "bad
side" of town, every square inch of the place is strychnine nasty and
terminal as cancer.

Crime bosses, crooked cops, hitmen, ladies of the night, thugs,
petty thieves, junkies, dirty politicians, gun thugs . . . every bad
seed of every rotten apple lives here.

Good people who live here too.
They're called victims.

    Culvert City is not a happy-go-lucky place to live – it’s the meanest and toughest place in the US, where the murdered outnumber the living. Filled with rotten people and dirty deeds, this town is not for the meek or weak of heart. HIRED GUN features very short stories with a description beforehand of the author’s inspiration/state of mind for the story. I especially enjoyed the no-name hitman and his catch phrase. Down and dirty crime fiction, HIRED GUN hits all the right spots. I hope we see more of the no-name hitman in the future. Check out HIRED GUN for something outside the norm!

    A decent Crime Fiction Anthology

    *Book source ~ A review copy was provided in exchange for an honest review.

    An anthology with eight stories revolving around crime in Culvert City.

    Big Tony Likes a Show ~ I love the nameless hitman, hate the writing format. It seems lazy. So, there’s my two cents on that.

    Respect ~ Short. Just a quick glimpse of a moment in time.

    Cancerstick ~ Another nameless hitman short and what do ya know? He has a sense of humor. lol

    Caught ~ Ah, how many of us have thought about this at some point in our life?

    Security Check ~ Is it bad that I love the nameless hitman? Well, I don’t mean love love, but you know what I mean. I love his ingenuity and unshakeability. Good qualities for a man in his profession.

    Teachable Moment ~ Extremely short and to the point. Hehe You’ll get it when you read it.

    Boots On ~ Oooh…this is one that will make you all mushy. Not gross mushy considering this is an anthology about crime, but good mushy.

    Treatment ~ The nameless hitman strikes again. Still loving him. I could read short stories about him all day long.
