In the Midwest, the saying goes, “Revenge is a hot-dish best served cold” – or something to that effect. In Joel Arnold’s new short story collection A WRINKLE IN CRIME, revenge is also served at a lakeside resort, in an outhouse, at a state fair, on a camping trip in the Gallatin Mountains, and along a snow-swept lonely highway.
In these 10 stories of foul play, murder and revenge, you’ll meet:
A man who takes advantage of an unfortunate accident to pull off a perfect crime.
A woman whose only refuge against a knife-wielding assailant is a fiberglass outhouse.
An elderly gay couple who come face to face with murder – and their past – at a cozy lake resort.
A sister whose dark secrets reside in a beautiful pearl.
A man who poses as an old woman’s personal assistant in order to murder her at the Minnesota State Fair.
These plus five more stories will keep you up late at night, turning the pages!
"Joel Arnold is, hands down, one of my favorite short story writers. This collection is impressive, diverse, and always great fun!” - Ellen Hart, author of the Jane Lawless and Sophie Greenway series.
