Idle Hands @ Near To The Knuckle

“David Battucci’s face is grey like cigarette ash. He has bloodshot eyes and squashed, lipless features. I haven’t seen him since the gangrene took his left leg, and the amputation has aged him badly. His cheap-looking prosthetic sits on the banquette next to him, like some kind of obscure threat.”

Idle Hands is the 6th story that I have had published by UK crime site Near To The Knuckle this year. Always a pleasure to be featured on the site – long may it continue!
