The Jade Elephant

Cover Image

Libby’s story, the Jade Elephant, was originally published in the Expletive Deleted Anthology, Bleak House Books, 2007. It was subsequently published by the Top Suspense Group in 2011. Libby describes it this way: In the sleazier parts of Chinatown, menus are stained, kitsch is king, and even walking down the street after dark is risky. Add in two lifelong criminals seeking redemption, and the result was “The Jade Elephant.”
