Baby Blue Meadows - a crime story (9,234 words)
A young girl, Aimee, finds herself coming out of rehab and with a 3-month-old baby. What can she do? Well, she could team up with her old friend Stan and seek some help from his folks, only Stan and his father are not in speaking terms. So they’ll have to come up with a way to persuade them to offer help. Honesty need not apply.
Morgan, Stan’s father, and notable philanderer, starts experiencing health problems that he fears will mean he’ll have to change his ways. Sex drive need not wane.
A common link to all of them is Gary, owner of The Garden, a local gentleman’s club. A link that, in different ways, will prove fatal for all involved. Death need not wait.
