I loved the last story I wrote so much I thought I would do a spin off of. It could be classified as a prequel because it covers the younger years of a minor character in Trouble Follows. The piece will be a nod to Dashiell Hammett's Red Harvest. Yes, this has been done before, but I feel there can't be enough Red Harvest knock offs. So I am going to contribute yet another to the literary and pulp market place.
I find the setting of the country, especially the Northwest, an intriguing backdrop for a gangster novel. It gives the yarn a very surreal touch to see fedora wearing gangsters in Montana surrounded by snow-capped peaks and evergreens. One just doesn't equate those things.
