New Mystery Short Story Set in 1940

“A Concrete Garter Belt”, a new Maggie Sullivan short story, has joined the four novels and one other short story currently in the mystery series.   It was previously published in the Private Eye Writers of America anthology Fifty Shades of Grey Fedora, but is now available as a stand-alone.

Garter-Zon

The private eye’s search for a missing girl takes her into a secretarial service, a common resource used by countless small businesses before the advent of answering machines, Spellcheck and Office 365.  It also provides a window into an era when being pawed by the boss was the price young women often paid for keeping their job.

Maggie doesn’t take well to pawing.  And she carries a Smith & Wesson.
