This story is now available in the first Dire Calls bundle: The Partners.
Months of sitting idle in the bull pen while his squadmates handle the legwork have left Homicide Unit Detective Griffon Dire restless and yearning for a case. A chance call for backup comes across his link on the busiest night of the year and Dire responds to the request, if only to get back on the street for a few minutes.
The routine stop of a suspected stolen vehicle erupts in a vicious assault as an ambush catches the officers off guard. With one uniform critically wounded and the other injured, Dire is forced to go beyond his training and embrace his powerful heritage in defense of his comrades
He drives the attackers off, but is unable to stomach seeing the assailants escape justice, and gives chase. Confronted with the no-man's land of the Warrens, he disregards department regs and pursues. Trapped in a maze of slums and unable to call for help, Griffon faces a fight for his life on Dead's Night.
Bonus story, Midnight Sorrows
Dire's increasingly reckless behavior forces his ex-partner, Thief, to bring things full circle as he makes a decision which will change Griffon's life forever.
(Story lengths: 13,000 & 3400 words; SFWA Class: Novelette & Short Story)
