Charles Splints from the story “Losing Focus on Reality” in Blissfire makes his return in DEVIL
This short story follows one of the cases placed into the capable hands of ex-cop Charles Splints. Though his past has been tarnished there are still those that know him to be the best, and this case shows just how much he has managed to keep his stride in tact.
When a beautiful woman walks into Charles’ office he knows it’s never to say hello. A new case is placed in front of him and with the payment already in his pocket he can’t back out of it. The man that controls the city must be stopped and Splints will need to refill his bottle a couple of times to get there. This short story takes another walk with the hard boiled detective from the short story “Losing Focus on Reality” that is included in my short story collection “Blissfire”.
