Everything about this gritty short story reminds me of its author. Danny Kemp is a versatile writer/character! What I enjoy mostly about his stories is his character development. Even in a short story, the reader connects with the characters in a way that brings them to life. You can hear their voices, picture what they look and even smell like. They seem too real to be fictional.
Gotta love a story that makes ya ask the author, “This is a true story, huh?” 😀

About the story: It’s not a gentle walk in the park kind of thing. It’s really a no holes bared, honest and twisted tale that begins with a botched robbery.

I loved how the ending left me with a big grin and a sarcastic idea of what “Vice Squad” means. :-/

Great job, Danny!!!

I understand the author was once a policeman and it shows…his knowledge shines through in this story in three parts. Very enjoyable and highly recommended reading.




About Danny Kemp

I was at work one sunny November day in 2006, stopped at a red traffic light when a van, driven incompetently, smashed into me. I was taken to St Thomas' Hospital and kept in for a while, but it was not only the physical injuries that I suffered from; it was also mental ones. I had lost confidence in myself let alone those around me. The experts said that I had post-traumatic stress disorder, which I thought only the military or emergency personnel suffered from. On good days, I attempted to go to work, sometimes I even made it through Blackwell Tunnel only to hear, or see, something that made me jump out of my skin and that's when the anxiety attacks would start. I told my wife that I was okay and going regularly, but I wasn't. I could not cope with life and thought about ending it. Somehow or other with the help of my wife and medical professionals, I managed to survive and ever so slowly rebuild my self-esteem. It took almost four years to fully recover, but it was during those dark depressive days that I began to write. My very first story, Look Both Ways, Then Look Behind, found a literary agent but not a publisher. He told me that I had a talent, raw, but nevertheless, it was there. His advice was to write another story and that I'm delighted to say, I did. The success of that debut novel, The Desolate Garden, was down to sheer hard work, luck, and of course, meeting a film producer.
