No Laughing Matter

A Novella by

Sometimes, comedy can seem like death...

For Pete "The Harv" Harvey, stand up comedy is a serious business. At least, he wants it to be. But the struggle to make it in the glitter dome of L.A. hasn't exactly been a smashing success.

One night, after bombing onstage at a local club, Pete wonders if his next stop is managing a car wash. Then a man sits next to him at the bar--a man with an almost unbelievable proposition. One that could mean a whole lot of money to Pete "The Harv" Harvey, who will soon learn that deals too good to be true are no laughing matter.

From "a master of suspense" (Library Journal) and the author of "heart-whamming" fiction (Publishers Weekly) comes a 3500 word short story which originally appeared as "Laughing Matters" in the e-book collection Fresh Kills. It is here offered as a stand alone story with a new title but the same twist ending.
