Sam McGregor By Sam_McGregor Completed

The first time I saw Adam Davis, he was at the casino. The second time he was dead. I have all the luck at making friends. It's a gift.

I don't do murder cases. There's a more than even chance that you'll end up with an empty wallet and a bullet in your back. Adam was someone else's dirty business, and I didn't want to get pulled into it, but sometimes you don't get a choice...

Author's note: This was a short story I submitted for a detective fiction competition in 2013.

It took me a few secs to understand the actual meaning in this.

I really enjoyed this story, but some of it is really hard to follow.

A Bag of nails was a good read but a short one.
                              The story was something that was full of action which I enjoyed and so did your info.
                              hope to see your more work
