From witty to sweet, dramatic to poignant, a collection of stories and
poems focusing on Ray Vecchio and Benton F
Man - By Morgan Dawn.
Back from Florida and his failed marriage, Ray Vecchio
deals with the reality of Fraser’s new partnership with Kowalski.
Excerpt: "Back off, Vecchio,"
Kowalski's face was so close Ray could feel his warm breath brush against
his face. He could smell the sweetness of the spice — what had Fraser
called it? turmeric — lingering on Kowalski’s
skin. Kowalski’s fingers dug in painfully, giving a sharp emphasis to his
For a split second Ray could see his fist connecting against flesh,
could feel the satisfying crunch of bone. He struggled against the rush of
adrenaline that even the thought of smashing Kowalski could bring. Fraser
stood silently, his face still curiously blank. There was a pool of
stillness lapping around them and Vecchio
realized that the warehouse had grown quiet.
His voice still echoed in the air and for the first time Ray felt
acutely aware of just how many TV news generators hummed outside. Ray
looked away and saw Robertson staring. They were all staring like he was
some first class idiot. Like he had just crashed a first grader’s birthday
party waving a gun. Or like he was an experienced detective who was acting

Room Service by Muriel Perun. Vecchio and Fraser accept an undercover assignment in a

reluctant at first, finds himself adapting far more quickly to this type of
work than he ever expected. Fraser, his confidence shattered, finds
himself needing Ray in ways he could never have expected.

he walked on by as if they’d hardly even met. Astonished, Fraser watched
Clothes Make the Man by Morgan Dawn and Muriel Perun.
Fine Italian leather shoes. Lanyards. Silk ties. Red serge. A story about
dressing… and undressing…
Excerpt: "Forget the shirt, Fraser. I have dozens
like that at home. Besides, it was too big for me anyway." He stood
back and eyed his partner thoughtfully.
"I know what’d cheer you up. Let’s get a few outfits for you.
Ones that won’t make you look so—baggy and bright. There’s a men’s shop I
go to that might have something that’d suit you."
"That’s not necessary, Ray, really. You don’t have to do
"Oh, come on, Fraser. We’re friends, aren’t we?" Fraser
nodded hesitantly. "And friends help each other. Tell each other truths, the kind of truths other people won’t tell you.
And I am telling you, as my partner, you gotta do
something about the clothes."
