Don’t move and you won’t get hurt – Silver Threads

Tom wasn’t prepared for the question and it unnerved him. “February fifth,” he answered nervously. The moment the words were out of his mouth he realized he’d made a mistake in giving his actual birthday. He yanked the gun from his pocket and said, “Don’t move and you won’t get hurt.” He moved closer to the counter, the hammer cocked and his right arm locked into position. The revolver was pointed at Albert’s face.

Albert heard the front door open and waited for a moment of distraction. His Beretta was less than a foot away; all he needed was the split second when the man turned to glance back.

The only thing Tom heard was the ringing in his ears.

About the author

Bette Lee Crosby

USA Today Bestselling and Award-winning novelist Bette Lee Crosby's books are "Well-crafted storytelling populated by memorable characters caught up in equally memorable circumstances." - Midwest Book Review The Seattle Post Intelligencer says Crosby's writing is, "A quirky mix of Southern flair, serious thoughts about important things in life and madcap adventures." Samantha from Reader's Favorite raves, "Crosby writes the type of book you can't stop thinking about long after you put it down." "Storytelling is in my blood," Crosby laughingly admits, "My mom was not a writer, but she was a captivating storyteller, so I find myself using bits and pieces of her voice in most everything I write." It is the wit and wisdom of that Southern Mama Crosby brings to her works of fiction; the result is a delightful blend of humor, mystery and romance along with a cast of quirky charters who will steal your heart away. Her work was first recognized in 2006 when she received The National League of American Pen Women Award for a then unpublished manuscript. She has since gone on to win nineteen awards for her work; these include: TheRoyal Palm Literary Award, the FPA President's Book Award Gold Medal, Reader's Favorite Award Gold Medal, and the Reviewer's Choice Award.
