Tender-hearted, tough-minded (and occasionally foul-mouthed) girls take center stage in suspenseful tales that are also touching, haunting, and darkly funny. From modern cities and the middle of nowhere--even a place that never existed--come stories about female entrepreneurs, housewives, mothers, daughters, addicts, strivers, wanderers, conquerors, runaways, and women in collision. Whatever you think upon hearing the phrase Girl Trouble, this spectacularly varied e-collection of short crime fiction from Criminal Element delivers.
The Malfeasance Occasional: Girl Trouble contains 14 crime stories: "Follow Us on Facebook and Twitter" by Eric Cline, "Mad Women" by Patricia Abbott, "The Wentworth Letter" by Jeff Soloway, "The Barnacle" by Hilary Davidson, "My Brother's Keeper" by Charles Drees, "The Third Echo" by Sam Wiebe, "Magda" by Cathi Stoler, "Crow's Lesson" by Robert Lopresti, "Her Haunted House" by Brendan DuBois, "Girl of Great Price" by Milo JamesFowler, "Benign" by Caroline J. Orvis, "Them Old Blues" by Ken Leonard, "Incident on the 405" by Travis Richardson, and "Birds of Paradise" by Chuck Wendig.
