McCarty Griffin has two other works available, The Tribe and Monster Story.


Bobby will soon be Pammy’s ex-husband. Good riddance. When Bobby continues his abusive ways after they’re separated, Pammy realizes she’ll never get him out of her life until his life is over.


A quick read of novella length, Half-Inch is a story of revenge. Griffin does an excellent job with his characterization, with Bobby, the abusive husband, coming off as someone who is easy to hate, yet not unlike people who actually exist. We also pull for his wife Pammy to find a happy ending. Even the minor characters are well drawn, fleshed out just enough to serve their purpose. The twist ending should be acceptable to most, whether you approve of taking the ultimate revenge or not.
