I'd welcome any feedback you'd care to give on it. mrt. I think it goes
without saying (or ought to) that your voice carries some weight (your
recommendations go a long way with me).
About the story itself: it's a period piece about a mob-connected lawyer who
works as a 'fixer" in 1962 Vegas, and is stuck baby-sitting the "Billy
Carter"-type older brother of the local boss. I think it might be my best
piece of work so far, and I am both proud of it and humbled by Linda
Landrigan's willingness to take a second look at it (I'd sent her a previous
draft, on which she'd passed). It's my second AHMM story, and I was
thrilled to have it placed in the Bouchercon issue.
All the Best-
