Dumber Than DIrt(2010)
(A book in the Nice Girl Does Noir series)
A Novella by Libby Fischer Hellmann
This short story was first published in 2000 in Blue Murder Magazine, which has since disappeared. It was reprinted in Twilight Tales' Blood and Doughnuts, and most recently in the ONCE UPON A CRIME ANTHOLOGY edited by Gary Bush. An "only in Chicago" story, it's goofy and noir at the same time.
