Beth lived two lives... one in the light, one in the dark. They started and ended at Union Station.

UNION STATION - Short Fiction by Dennis Lowery

A ‘longish’ short story that resulted from one of my ‘Pick a Picture Get a Story Written’ contests. Currently in development as a screenplay.

It was 1943… dark times with a world at war….

And the type of murder police won’t put more than a token effort into investigating.

Beth’s friend is murdered and she’s next on the killer’s list. Despite the risk of revealing her secret, she avenges her friend.

“Vivid and sensuous storytelling, Dennis.” –Vicki Tyley, bestselling author of five mystery/suspense novels

“As usual, it was extremely well written. I, as I am sure was true for most readers, felt your detailed descriptions enabled me to picture a scene in my mind as if I was actually watching a movie! You very effectively kept the reader on seat’s edge in the final pages of the story, wondering how everything would play out. And the ending with – DELETED SPOILER PART OF THE COMMENT- was an absolutely brilliant touch on how to bring the whole story to closure.” –Jim Zumwalt. James G.
