Mini-Review (click to view--possible spoilers)

Review: 2019.009 (A Word for Authors)

Pro: There’s a lot of material here for an interesting story: the new cop, the addiction, the addict who needs special treatment because he’s been under so long, the older cop who wants to just let the addict die, etc.

Con: The story just ends abruptly. Nothing is done with any of the ideas developed here.
