Breakneck pace and unusual scenarios await the readers in this short story collection by Chris Roy.
Her Name is Mercie by Chris Roy
Genres: Short Stories, Crime Fiction
Published: 26th May, 2018 (expected)
Mercie Hillbrook lives a simple, quiet life working as a gas station attendant. Then her parents are killed. Her home is taken. The people responsible are excused for just doing their job. When an attempt to get justice her way lands her in trouble with the law, Mercie realizes she still has something to lose: her own life.
Then she finds reason to believe her parents were murdered… and she doesn’t care anymore.
Victims or perpetrators? Hard to tell sometimes. One wrong decision is all we need to turn even the most innocents of us down the path of crime. This is exactly what happens to our Merci, a nice enough lady who goes on a rampage after police ends up killing her parents during a simple traffic stop. She’s quite intense in her rage, but it’s impossible to not feel for her.
All stories are exploring slightly different scenarios, but there’s one thing they have in common: brutality. Explicit and often senseless violence, the pages are dripping in blood for good measure.
With quick to read stories this collection is perfect for crime fans in need of a short break, and those of us noir craving mood readers with commitment issues.
