"Career Transitions"

Sherlock Holmes Mystery Magazine, Issue 24

Available through Amazon.

A hitman named Richie (aka The Iceman), whose contract agent is the guy behind the counter in a variety store in Queens, completes another professional assignment — flawlessly — in upstate New York. Then, as is his custom, he repairs to a carefully chosen bed and breakfast inn, a prudent distance away, for a night or two of relaxation, meditation and fine food. Richie doesn’t expect to use his professional skill set during his stay at this bed and breakfast, but sometimes you have to do what you have to do. And you never know where it’s going to lead.
