The Jade Elephant(2010)
(A book in the Nice Girl Does Noir series)
A Novella by Libby Fischer Hellmann
The following short story was published in the EXPLETIVE DELETED anthology (Bleak House, 2008) edited by Jen Jordan. I loved researching the seamier, sleazier parts of Chinatown where menus are stained, kitsch is king, and even walking down the street after dark is risky. Add in two older criminals seeking redemption, and the result was irresistible. At least to me.
