a short story

Published by Bandit Fiction, January 2021

Former police officer Catharine Moorhouse has resigned herself to living out her days in a nursing home, forgotten by her children and belittled by her carers. Alone in her room, she is still determined to solve a fifteen-year-old case, when a mother was killed and a child disappeared.
