Now Available from Down & Out Books: LET ME PUT MY STORIES IN YOU, a Collection by Ryan Sayles
"I'm a fan of Ryan's crime novels, a series featuring PI Richard Dean Buckner," said Eric Campbell, Publisher of Down & Out Books. "When I learned he also had a number of unpublished stories, we put together this collection that combines his new work with a few of his previously published stories."
About LET ME PUT MY STORIES IN YOU …
Need an escape for a few minutes? Don't care if that escape smells like spent gunpowder or could fit into a chalk outline? Then look no further.
In this new collection of short fiction, Ryan Sayles continues his streak of no holds-barred grit. An old hit man sharing a last drink with the ghost of one of his first victims. A grieving mother who knows exactly to whom she wants to give all her love. A college student more dangerous than the active shooter event in which he's trapped. A couple's last resort against terminal cancer that might be worse than the disease.
Be glad these folks are the ones making—and paying for—the mistakes and you're only getting to read about them. If you've got a few minutes to kill, come on over. Killing is a guaranteed thing around here.
