Police on the beat, working one-officer shops and seasoned detectives pursue a cunning home intruder, a full-moon prankster, false friends, vengeful partners.
Adrenaline-charged car chases, unsanctioned surveillance, intense interrogation. The impact of a child’s tragic death. The import of unearthing what happened to an infant and her mother. Lives saved and crooks captured.
This gripping collection of Sandi Wallace’s award-winning short fiction—“Busted”, “Silk Versus Sierra” and “Losing Heidi”—along with new and never-before released verse and stories, includes “Impact”, a finalist in the international Cutthroat Rick DeMarinis Short Story Contest.
Sandi's work has been praised by serving police officers, authors and critics, including J.M. Peace, Jaye Ford, Vanda Symon, and the Herald Sun.
