About the author:
Matthew Iden writes fantasy, science fiction, horror, thrillers, crime fiction, and contemporary literary fiction with a psychological twist.

An eclectic resume--he's held jobs with the US Postal Service, international non-profit groups, a short stint with the Forest Service in Sitka, Alaska and time with the globe-spanning Semester at Sea program--has given him inspiration for short stories and novel ideas, while trips to Iceland, Patagonia, and Antarctica haven't hurt in the creative juices department, either. A post-graduate education in English Literature wasn't necessary, but it helped define what he didn't want to do with his life and let him read a great deal of good books.

one bad twelve

Authored by Matthew Iden

A group of Mafia wiseguys sweat it out as they wait to hear who's snitched on them in "Up a Rung", a disturbed woman loses more than her mind in "Possession", and a postman's larcenous streak gets him in a terrible mess just a few days before Christmas in "Special Delivery".

There are just a few of the thirteen tales that had to be bribed, shoved, and bullied into ONE BAD TWELVE. These stories-chock full of dirty motives, relentless ambitions, and a lop-sided view of the world-aren't used to being pushed around.

Read them, buy them, or ignore them...just don't turn your back on them.

ONE BAD TWELVE is the master collection of the stories found in Three Shorts, Three the Hard Way, Three on a Match, and Three of a Kind as well as a short story unique to this volume, "Sixteen Steps". Includes a Story Notes appendix detailing the background and motivation for all the stories, as well as an excerpt from the medium-boiled detective series debut, A REASON TO LIVE.
