Flash Fiction Post 87 – The New Gordian Knot

Morning all. This week’s story is a bit longer than a typical Flash Fiction story. It features my detective character, Fletcher, in a rather different case than those that have gone before. It came from another random thought that popped into my head. From nothing at all I thought of the term ‘Gordian knot’. I couldn’t even remember what it meant and had to look it up. Once I had been reminded it turned into […]

It’s called New Allies Get Busy. Please send me your […]
