Tort, Ken Bruen, EQMM

Tort is not a legal term here but a cop’s name for a turtle a little girl thrusts on a cop as her family leaves the building. The gift comes after his wife takes off, leaving a note which lays the blame on his inattention. Tort gets his attention but its not to be. A sad story that’s as stylish as Mad Men in its own way.
