Perfect for reading on a short commute or as a bed-time treat, these charming short stories by best-selling crime writer Bud Craig are sure to put a smile on your face.*

At times delicate and heart-warming, at others, devilish and irreverent, these award-winning short stories recount different lives on the edge; changes big and small. If there is another connection, it is the streak of cheeky humour that runs through them.

Mostly set in Craig’s native city of Salford, with crime themes, HIGH PROFILE also transports us to Memphis Tennessee, as well as imaginary places at the furthest reaches of the universe.
