Thief's Deception: A Short Story

21 pages16 minutes


Jameson Longe is a forty-something, over-the-hill soldier of fortune (re: mercenary) with early signs or arthritis, a vanishing hairline, and a sharp, cynical attitude. There isn't much he won't do for money. Two parts action and one part dark humour, THIEF'S DECEPTION is the first in a series of short stories surrounding the exploits of this aged veteran.
