Crime Ring | A Serialized Thriller


Chapter 18


Gina lay prone on the floor of a dark passageway.

Charlie had basically thrown her across the closet floor toward a narrow horizontal door along the floor of the closet. Suddenly, she was out of the shooting gallery.

While she’d successfully slipped through the narrow entryway, Charlie hadn’t been so lucky. When he did a feet first slide little door, he’d missed the opening and hit the wall hard a little to the right.

Charlie was exposed and about to get shot.

Gina grabbed a fresh clip from her belt and ejected the old one from her Glock.

Half a second later she was giving Charlie covering fire – her hand extended through the small horizontal door.

The muzzle flashes let Charlie reorient himself. He shoved his legs through the opening.

Gina continued giving Charlie covering fire with one hand, and did her best to pull him into the dark space with the other.

After a moment, their mystery attacker returned Gina’s fire, the bullets hitting the wall right above Charlie’s body.

“Hurry!” Gina said.

“My shoulders are stuck,” Charlie said.

More bullets ricocheted close to Charlie. He tried to wiggle his shoulders through the small door.

If he couldn’t get through the hole, they were both dead.



Tomorrow on Crime Ring:


There’s no way to escape….. Wait, is that a squirrel?

D. Ray Thomas has written for most of his life and is now living his dream by writing the Take It Back stories. The series features part Robin Hood, part vigilante, Douglas Gage.

Ray’s love for the written word has shown itself in various forms. From years of performing his own material as a standup comic, to writing for television, and to ultimately writing stories in his favorite genre.

And, I won, this is kind of a big deal, I won, I mean, uh, Ray is a Daytime Emmy winner.

You can have an informed conversation with Ray about Broadway Musicals as well as all things baseball.

Ray now resides in Los Angeles, CA with his wife in a house run by their six cats. He hopes you enjoy reading his books as much as he does writing them.
