Dying Breath – Helen Phifer

He watched and waited, playing his favourite guessing game. Who was going to die tonight? He was sitting in the car with the engine running to keep the windows from steaming up. Autumn was his favourite time of year; he liked the dark nights and the frosty mornings, although today had been dismal. He’d been […]

Drone – M.L. Buchman

THE FLİGHT ATTENDANT stepped up to her seat—4E—which had never been her favorite on a 767-300. At least the cabin setup was in the familiar 261-seat, 2-class configuration, currently running at a seventy-three percent load capacity with a standard crew of ten and one ride-along FAA inspector in the cockpit jump seat. “Excuse me, are […]

Down to the Woods – M.J. Arlidge

She reached out, but found only emptiness. The silky fabric was cool to her touch, which confused her. Where there should be a warm, sentient being, there was just … a void. Unnerved, Melanie Walton hauled herself upright. Immediately she regretted it, her burgeoning headache slapping into her forehead. Every time she and Tom went […]

Down the River Unto the Sea – Walter Mosley

Looking out from my second-floor window onto Montague Street is better than the third-floor view. From here you can almost make out the lines in the faces of the hundreds of working people moving past; people who, more and more, have no reason to walk through the doors of the fancy shops and banks that […]

Double Blind – Iris Johansen, Roy Johansen

SHE HAD TO STAY ALIVE just a few minutes longer. Elena Meyer crouched in the alleyway, fighting the dizziness. Keep it together, girl. Breathe. She felt her side. Warm and sticky where blood was still oozing from the gunshot wound. Fight the darkness. Fight the fog creeping over her forehead and descending over her eyes. […]

Donut Disaster – Addison Moore

I  see dead people. Mostly I see the furry dearly departed variety, aka dead pets, and on the rare occasion I do see a dearly departed human, but right now, my gaze is locked over a pair of emerald-colored eyes that shine bright in this murky light as we stand at the edge of the […]

Don’t Tell Teacher – Suzy K. Quinn

We’re running. Along wide, tree-lined pavements, over the zebra crossing and into the park. ‘Quick, Tom.’ Tom struggles to keep up, tired little legs bobbing up and down on trimmed grass. He gasps for breath. My ribs throb, lighting up in pain. A Victorian bandstand and a rainbow of flowerbeds flash past. Dimly, I notice […]

Don’t Tell A Soul – D.K. Hood

Kill me. One blood-splattered cowboy boot crunched on the chipped cement floor inches away from his cheek. A sick chuckle followed by a nerve-shattering kick to broken ribs brought back the tremors. A lightning bolt of white-hot agony shot down his spine. In a desperate attempt to pull precious air through swollen lips, he spat […]

Don’t Say a Word – Amber Lynn Natusch

When I was eight, I learned what evil was. Not the generic kind of evil that people use to describe bad things, but real and true evil of the most biblical sense. The kind that defies explanation. The kind that you can never scrub from your mind once you encounter it. Dad and Gramps had […]

Don’t Let Go – Harlan Coben

Daisy wore a clingy black dress with a neckline so deep it could tutor philosophy. She spotted the mark sitting at the end of the bar, wearing a pinstripe gray suit. Hmm. The guy was old enough to be her dad. That might make it more difficult for her to make her play, but then […]

Don’t Ever Tell – Lucy Dawson

As I open the front door, the birds are chattering, the shrubs and trees in my parents’ garden are glowing honey-gold in the sunrise, but while the air smells invitingly fresh and crisp, I scan The Close anxiously. The neighbours’ curtains are still shut, everything looks normal, dewdrops are sparkling on my father’s neatly cut […]

Don’t Close Your Eyes – Christie Craig

Thu-thump. Thu-thump. The sounds came to Annie Lakes first. The sound of her young heart thudding in her chest. The night sounds of insects, owls, and unknown creatures scuttling around the woods at night. The sound of…fear. Then a panic-laced young voice echoed in the dark distance. “Faster, Annie.” She couldn’t run faster. She couldn’t […]

Don’t Breathe a Word – Christie Craig

Juan held the camera and filmed his wife as she spoke. Angie had come up with this idea of making videos for their unborn daughter so that when she grew up she would know how wanted and loved she was at the start. “I love you, baby girl, and I love your daddy.” Angie spoke […]

Dog Days of Murder – Addison Moore, Bellamy Bloom

My name is Bizzy Baker, and I read minds. Not every mind, not every time, but it happens, and believe me when I say it’s not all it’s cracked up to be. It’s a crisp October evening and the inn is bustling with bodies. Every inch of the entry is dotted with pumpkins, and there […]

Do Not Disturb – Claire Douglas

I’m awoken by a shrill scream. Something’s happened to the girls. I sit up in bed, my heart racing. The air is still. Silent. Did I dream it? My eyes dart to Adrian’s side of the bed. It’s empty, the sheet creased and slightly damp, the duvet thrown back as though he left in a […]

Dirty Money – Liliana Hart

Nina Walsh’s head was killing her. Her body jerked as the air conditioner kicked on, and the white Priscillas swayed in the kitchen window. The gray light of dawn was just peaking over the windowsill and bathing the kitchen in a soft glow. She hadn’t realized she’d been sitting in the dark. The white tile […]

Dirty Little Secrets – Jo Spain

The bluebottle had no idea it was about to die. It zipped upwards in the blue sky, warm sun shimmering on its wings, bright metallic stomach bloated with human skin cells and blood. The bluebottle didn’t see the blackbird swoop, beak open in anticipation. It didn’t hear the satisfying crunch that brought an untimely end […]

Dex – Donna Michaels

If the alarm on his cell phone hadn’t gone off, Dexter “Dex” Wright would’ve woken up on time anyway, thanks to the living, breathing, feathered alarm sitting on a perch in the large cage in the corner of his friend’s living room. “Rise and shine, Princess. Wakey, wakey. C’mon, get up, ya lazy bum,” the […]

Devil’s Food Cake Doom – Addison Moore

My name is Lottie Lemon, and I see dead people. Okay, so rarely do I see dead people. Mostly I see furry creatures of the dearly departed variety, aka dead pets, who have come back from the other side to warn me of their previous owner’s impending doom. But right now, I’m not seeing a […]
