"Saving Kali", by Phyllis Smallman

This is a short fiction about a homeless woman, a sexual predator, and a child in danger. Although only 51 pages, the story provides a good punch and the expected thrills found in mysteries. 

When an author manages to write a touching and captivating story, populates it with a warm and divers cast and wraps up everything beautifully in a few pages, the author definitely merits good marks. Ms. Smallman’s writing may be sparse here but is rich in tension and suspense.

Can anyone witnessing a wrong play possum? Find out how far the protagonist goes in this story …..Touching.

Although I am a huge fan of this author I maintain a short story even excellent will always leave me unsatisfied, I need more.
