Michael Palmer and Matthew Palmer join forces to pen the story of John, a low-level criminal looking for the next big score in the factory town of Logan.

A small-time criminal joins a gang, does a year in prison, and swears he’s better than all of it. That’s when he decides he will rob the home of the Harpy, an ancient woman living out her last days in a moldering mansion above town. But things don’t go as John expects, and Harpy is given a reward that may well be a curse. With this information John swears he’s invincible … but has he thought of every angle?

“The Deal” by Michael Palmer and Matthew Palmer is one of twenty short stories within Mulholland Books’ Strand Originals series, featuring thrilling stories by the most legendary authors in the Strand magazine archives.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Fleet Cooper gives voice to Michael and Matthew Palmer’s short story about a petty criminal who finds himself face to face with an old woman during a robbery. The old woman has nothing of value left in her house but offers to tell her home invader exactly when he will die, down to the hour. Has she bestowed on him a treasure or a curse? Cooper definitely lavishes his listeners with a treasure. The gritty texture of his narration characterizes the morally bankrupt thief, and his interpretation of the old woman lends an atmospheric chill to the tale. This brief gem in Mulholland Books’ Strand Originals series is a dazzling sparkler any mystery fan will appreciate. Winner of the AudioFile Earphones Award.”
