Previously in Second Saturday Stories the crime thriller Bullet Drop debuted.
Readers were introduced to a narrator going through police cadet training with the ultimate goal of going undercover and infiltrating the criminal element of his city. He gets the opportunity to flex his talent when he’s invited to a mob-run card game at a local restaurant, but soon finds out it takes more than a good poker face to avoid busting out. When he loses at that card table, he loses big.
Read the first part of Bullet Drop here.
Part 2 picks up with our narrator caught in the aftermath of his debt. When his family is threatened he has no alternative but to play a role in a deadly bid for power within the very criminal element he yearns to bring down. Minutes before he pulls the trigger our narrator stumbles on a murder already committed. Stuck between a crime that’s been committed and one yet to come, our young cadet will be faced with a choice: does he play trigger man for the mob, clearing his debt and keeping his family safe, or will he stop a murderer from killing again?
Find out today at 3 p.m. when Bullet Drop concludes.
