Horror short story
This stinks, thought Denny morosely, like some mother's group setting him up, the divine angels of society's secret vile justice ...
A paroled monster, a prostitute and a policeman all see a little girl lost, but this isn't the start of a joke. What can such a morsel do, when all that's left to rely on is the kindness of strangers?
This short urban fantasy is part of a suite of short science fiction, fantasy and horror stories by BP Gregory, each its own little maelstrom of human suffering and longing. Includes disquieting (adult) themes.
Strangers can be enjoyed alone or as part of Orotund: Collected Short Stories Volume 2.
