Rain Down: A Crime Novella
A man with no name hits the streets of Portland to find a friend he fears may have been killed for taking a stand.
It’s 2009, and the economy’s falling apart. Formerly homeless, the no-name man owes what little he has to his friend Oscar. As a fellow day laborer, Oscar had always stood up for their rights—maybe one time too many.
Now he needs to find Oscar and soon, he realizes, or he just might take the rap himself. He dodges the cops, tries to save his drug-addicted ex, and discovers that a desperate condo developer and his wife are conspiring to cover up a tragic crime. To get at the whole truth he’ll finally have to face his past, and accept who Oscar really was—only then can he reclaim his name and place in a harsh world.
Rain Down is hard-hitting crime noir with a heart, all in a compact novella totaling about 95 print pages.
