A Real Scorcher by Sarah M Chen

A tale told in more of the typical short story style than some we have seen recently, I have loved the mix of approaches to story telling over a shorter word count that the judges chose though. A Real Scorcher is the tale of a couple struggling with their marriage, setting out on a trip to Mexico, a last-ditch attempt at recovering things via a holiday.

As always in noir though, things aren’t quite what they seem, either with our characters or the situations they find themselves in. As the pieces start to come together your views on who are the good and bad guys in this get turned around a little, and the ending has a wonderfully satisfying reveal.
