This was written not only for Rose's Story Dice Challenge and Jacquelin's Open at the Close Challenge, but also for an offsite short story competition through NYC Midnight. My prompts for that competition were:


Genre: crime caper

Subject: an inheritance

Character: an anesthesiologist (need not be a main character)


The NYC Midnight competition was limited to a max of 2500 words, so for that one I submitted a trimmed down version of what you're about to read here.
