Before You Croak
a free short story
by Nikki Kincaid
When an old friend comes to private investigator Eve Thorton with a story about some sapphires and a $25k reward for their return, Eve agrees to take the case.
But when she starts looking and finds a dead body instead, it's clear that she isn’t the only one searching for the sapphires…
and the search is deadly.
I like to write stories about characters whose lives haven't gone as planned, who tend to walk the fine line between right and wrong. Maybe that's why, when asked about myself, I say, "I'm a happy person with a heavy soul" -- a line I stole from a social media post somewhere.
