Not every crime is committed with intent, but each has
one thing in common: the guilty party was asking for trouble. The ten taut
tales in this collection from award-winning crime fiction author Simon Wood are
rife with good intentions gone bad—and bad intentions gone worse.
In “Making Ends Meet,” Richard can’t stand the idea of
supporting his deadbeat in-laws anymore, so he decides to remove them from his
life—permanently. Matt is ready to reform his brawling ways, but the group he
joins doesn’t turn out to be a typical twelve-step program, in “The
Taskmasters.” “Protecting the Innocent” features Nick, who fails to heed the
warnings of his girlfriend’s possessive brother. And with “A Gun in the House,”
Leah refuses to move from her beloved home, leading to protective measures with
disastrous results. These and six other storiess send out the invitation for disaster—one
that’s gladly accepted.
Filled with jaw-dropping twists and turns, Asking for Trouble is a wild ride that will leave listeners
clamoring for more. Download and start listening now!
