Closure: Jack Randall (Give away)

When a prominent lawyer is shot while waiting at a suburban stop sign it sets off a nation-wide manhunt for an elusive killer. Special Agent Jack Randall of the FBI finds himself appointed to track down and stop the shooter. Not by his superiors, but by the killer himself. As more bodies fall the shooter takes his message to the press, earning the support of the public with his choice of targets and confounding the FBI at every turn. From the desert of Nevada to the urban jungle of New York City, Jack and his team follow the trail of bodies and haunting messages left behind by the killer. With the pressure to find him mounting on Jack, the assassin’s crimes grow bolder, and his message more sinister and closer to home. It becomes clear to Jack that in order to find the shooter, he may have to look inside his own past, and become the man he was years ago.

Author's free short stories

I’ve always liked short stories, they are an art unto themselves. Compacting all of the elements of a full-length novel into a fraction of the size is harder than it looks. Some authors start out writing novels and end up with a short story. That’s happened to me but usually I set them aside for a second effort rather than publish them as-is.

The stories you’ll find here came about due to a writing exercise. I wanted to write an individual  story for each character in the jack Randall world but have them cross paths with all of the other characters in the same 24 hour period. Its a nightmare of pacing and timeline issues but I enjoyed the challenge. I’ll keep two up here on this page and rotate them in and out every so often. If a new one should pop up I’ll give everyone a heads-up on the home page. These stories can also be found in a complete book called TIME if you’d rather not wait.

Hope you enjoy them,

Randall
