On "An Unusual Case" by Bruce Dodson (1876 words) ***
This strange piece of noir starts off normal enough. The narrator is hired by the usual oddly compelling to look at woman. He ventures to a bar, asks around, looking for a suspect, a man. But what I like about this piece is how things circle around in a kind of mind-numbing way. Let's just say that everything he's searching for shows up. Read the story here at the Applicant.
