Asking for Trouble

Genre: Thriller

Asking for Trouble

Not every crime is committed with intent, but each has one thing in common: the guilty party was asking for trouble. In “Making Ends Meet,” Richard can’t stand the idea of supporting his deadbeat in-laws anymore, so he decides to remove them from his life — permanently. Matt is ready to reform his brawling ways, but the group he joins doesn’t turn out to be a typical 12-step program, in “The Taskmasters.” “Protecting the Innocent” features Nick, who fails to heed the warnings of his girlfriend’s possessive brother. And with “A Gun in the House,” Leah refuses to move from her beloved home, leading to protective measures with disastrous results. These and six others send out the invitation for disaster — one that’s gladly accepted. The ten taut tales in this collection from award-winning crime-fiction author Simon Wood are rife with good intentions gone bad — and bad intentions gone worse. Filled with jaw-dropping twists and turns, Asking for Trouble is a wild ride that will leave listeners clamoring for more.
