Friday Fictioneers .. Death by Construction

This story is written for Friday Fictioneers.


The cold waters of the Saint Lawrence River confronted the old man as he glazed at the new stadium under construction. 1975 was a boon year for the great lakes area. The Detroit Lions would soon be the new occupants of this building. He had told his friend that they would have dinner at the Machus Red Fox Restaurant. He picked his old friend up in his brand new Mercury Marquis Brougham. On the way they stopped at the construction site to examine the foundation.

It didn’t take much money to convince the construction crew to bury the remains of Jimmy.




  1. I have a mental image of mobster-types getting all excited when there’s new building going on and queueing up round the block, waiting in line to get rid of their latest victims. Nice one!
