Stain on Love

Published Apr 17, 2019 · 1,834 words (7 minutes) · 188 views

Mystery Romance swearing Glasgow crime lots of crime lots of swearing

A silly short story of one gangster and the woman he loves. I am not a frequent crime writer but I love getting into it when I have an idea that works, and this short came out of the ideas of relationships and permissible bad behaviour. It's very much a crime story but there's no option for that so we have mystery and romance because those are technically present.
