“Family Treed” is 1.5 in my Big Uneasy series. This short story is my amuse bouche, a taste, a quick bite for my readers, a chance to check in on Nell and Alex (from Relatively Risky).
Nell’s not sure why the mob wants to have dinner with her. She is sure she wants a cop at her side.
Alex wouldn’t let Nell dine with the mob without him, despite much unease from his many siblings.
But as the dark and stormy night’s dinner progresses, Nell wonders if she’s putting Alex’s life in danger.
Can they survive dinner with the killing cousins?
This short story is about 13,000 words or 33 printed pages.
