With his anthology, THREE TO THE HEART, Rick Mofina provides three of his finest short pieces of crime fiction. Three acclaimed, heart-wrenching short stories of people facing enormous odds.
In the story, "Backup," an 11-year-old boy finds his father's gun and rushes to a deadly stand off at the mall. In "A Lifetime Burning in a Moment," we meet John Devlin, a mild-mannered actuary and lifelong weakling, who searches for courage when his family is threatened. In "The Last Pursuit," a cop, desperate to redeem himself for the mistake that destroyed his life, works alone to track the murderer he was escorting to trial after their plane crashes in the Rocky Mountains.
