The Boy Next Door

Short Story, Contemporary Mystery, Amateur Sleuth, Humour

For the last fourteen years, former celebrated Boy Detective Merle Madison has been trying to build a grown-up career for himself as a private investigator. There are just two problems: there's not a lot of serious crime in the small town of Hayvenhurst -- and Police Chief Isaac Ramsay keeps denying Merle's application for a PI license.

Merle and Isaac have history, some good and some bad, so when someone seems determined to put Merle out of business--permanently--he naturally turns to his former sidekick for help.
