All strange things must end. The final chapter of the second story in the Demons, Devils and Rogues triptych rolls in on a wave of shock and dismay and splashes around in it for quite some time. It’s not as smutty as you might think, but it is a tad… “sprightly.”

This last chapter was fun to work on. That’s probably because the homages in this one are drawn from one of my favorite books, Mystery Mile by Margery Allingham. There was no specific image or scene I borrowed. It just kind of permeates.

Any road, I expect it’s either too much or not enough smut to suit your tastes, but there you go.
