"1000 Yards", by Mark Dawson
This well-done plot sets off John’s career in North Korea as a crafty marksman. Even as a short story all the elements to make this a pager-turner are found: a captivating storyline, action-packed throughout, descriptive scenery at every corner, a cold blooded killer to rack up tension and many nail biting moments to keep us hooked.
Written in short chapters, “1000 Yards” throws a good punch and sets beautifully the mood for what is to come.
