Upper Story (More)

Here’s a little excerpt from UPPER STORY, the new C&B short story, free to all who preorder the next C&B novel, HEART OF BARKNESS (link below).

Sometimes when perps go wrong it happens gradually, little step by little step. Other times it happens all at once – boom. Which was how it went down with Chuckie. Halfway along on his drainpipe journey and for no reason that I could see he lost his grip, went “Arrgh!” and plummeted to the alley. BOOM. I felt the vibration in my paws. Chuckie’s backpack flew free and tumbled over my way, spilling out a stream of cell phones.

    HOH: I like that phrase too!

    A yucky, rainy, humid day here. My hair does not like it one bit!

    RIO! Those brownies that Friend made sure sound delish! My mouth is watering…

    Good day to all!

    AJ, Pixie and Snowhook, thank you for teaching us “gee” and “haw”. We learned it when we stayed in the hotel ☹️for the month after our house burned. Mom decided to test us today (a pop quiz) and we both remember. Who are good dogs?
