All These Crooked Streets
A Collection of Three Crime Novellas

“The stories in All These Crooked Streets start with the familiar, then twist it into something fresh through assured and engaging storytelling. A fascinating glimpse into the seedier elements that exists in the shadows of our day-to-day lives.”

– Craig Shreve (One Night in Mississippi)


The streets we walk upon lead to many different places. A strip club off the highway during a blizzard. A cold case, thirty years unsolved. A photographer, in over his head. Three tales of bad decisions, poor choices and the lure of easy money. Authors Christian Laforet, Edmond Gagnon and Ben Van Dongen shine a spotlight on the seedy underworld hiding around the corner…in the shadows. It’s easy to become lost on All These Crooked Streets
