Flash in the Pan: Egress

Detective Fairchild smiled and let out a sigh of relief as the guilty verdict came down from the jury. For 10 years he had been trying to put Manuel Ortega behind bars. Drugs, prostitution, money laundering, murder, extortion and bribery just to name a few charges. Who would have thought that it would have been so easy to bust him. And now he would never get out of prison alive. Of course he felt sorry for the 314 people who had died. If Manuel would have made the changes that the building inspector told him to, those people may still be alive.It’s amazing that a minimum egress law would bust him for life.

The flash word is egress. Maximum word count is 150. I used 110. The read what others are writing, visit Flash in the Pan at the M3 blog



  1. Sounds a lot like a famous parking ticket. Great flash.
