Perfect Execution is now out in paperback. I did find a couple of minor glitches which I hope the publisher will correct before the great book-buying public gets its hands on a copy.
I have tried to make each story unique in time and place, in theme and writing style so that the collection could masquerade as an anthology by a variety of different authors. Your readers will be a better judge than I in determining if I have succeeded.
Thanks for your invaluable help with the blurb and for your ongoing encouragement.
Perfect Execution and Other Stories by Michael Joll
A viola player in Depression-era San Francisco is surprised by the hidden talent of a panhandler he encounters. In Barbados, a middle aged voyeur confronts the object of his desires. A woman in Delhi plots revenge on her abusive husband. A German army corporal in WW2 has to decide between conflicting evils. A veteran Winnipeg detective solves a string of arsons and a trail of bodies in an unconventional way. A bomber pilot returning home from a prisoner-of-war camp discovers that life in post-war England is far from what he fought for – these are just some of the situations in Michael Joll’s wide-ranging collection of short stories.
