Short Story Review – Right Now by Sarah Elizabeth Baethge
This was a good short story once it got going.
The start was a detailed explanation of what the detective agency investigates and why. This was a little boring and it could have been added later once the story had already gripped you.
The actual story plot was very good, it involved a detective agency made up of 2 detectives and a receptionist, they take on a case and in the course of the investigation come upon a man who has been locked away in a shed. They rescue him. This man has been experimented on, he now has the ability to see into the future but it is not perfected and the consequence is that he has forgotten a lot of his past.
This could have been developed into a full length book and would have been better for it.
The investigation itself was never completed.
The writing style is easy to read and I will read more by Sarah but I advice her to re-work this piece as it could be an excellent novel.
Stars 3/5 – I liked it.
