New Romantic Suspense Novelette Available: New York City’s Finest

It’s new release time again. This time around, I have a new crime novelette to announce, first in a possible romantic suspense series.

I’m a big fan of using online generator for story ideas and writing prompts. One of my favourites was the They Fight Crime! generator for creating unlikely buddy cop duos, since I’ve always been a sucker for crime dramas with oddles of sexual tension, unresolved or otherwise. Unfortunately, the original generator is gone, but a copy can still be found here.

Some time ago, I played with the They Fight Crime! generator looking for story ideas and got the following:

He’s a world-famous devious cop plagued by the memory of his family’s brutal murder. She’s a pregnant junkie cab driver who hides her beauty behind a pair of thick-framed spectacles. They fight crime!

The prompt immediately intrigued me and so Jo Grayson and Ray McCormick were born. And here is their first adventure together:

New York City’s Finest
New York City's Finest by Cora BuhlertJo Grayson had a dark past. Ex con-artist, ex-junkie, complete and utter screw-up. However, she left all that behind her when she became pregnant. And now, six months later, Jo has a dingy one-room apartment and a crappy but steady job as a cab driver. Things are looking up.
But then one day, her past catches up with Jo in the form of a mysterious stranger getting into her cab. The stranger is Detective Ray McCormick, a cop on a mission to hunt down the criminal mastermind known only as the Kraken. McCormick wants information, information only Jo can provide, for Jo used to work for the Kraken and is one of the few people ever to walk out on him and live to tell the tale.
Jo is as eager as anyone to see the Kraken go down. But helping McCormick could put both Jo’s life and that of her unborn child at risk.

  1. Best wishes for a hugely successful new release, Cora.

      Thanks, Doug. Sorry for putting you in moderation, but I had to put all comments in moderation after a recent troll attack.

  2. I left a comment last night to say I bought this, but it disappeared!

    Anyway, I did 🙂

      You left the comment at my publisher site, Pegasus Pulp, where I indeed approved it (here it is). Commenting is still a bit screwy over here, because I have everybody in moderation (including myself, which is problematic, if I forget to approve my own comments), until I’m sure the trolls have moved on for good.

      Anyway, thanks for the purchase. Hope you enjoy the story.
