Free Fiction Monday: Family Affair
Private Investigator Smokey Dalton receives a call from an old friend to help transport a battered woman and her young daughter from Madison, Wisconsin, to a shelter in Chicago.
But when Smokey and Marvella Walker show up at the drop site, they learn that the woman is both white and a racist. She refuses to leave with them.
And that’s only the beginning of their problems.
