The Right Moment by Michael Solender at Thrillers, Killers 'n Chillers
There are several Michael Solender stories that could be in my top five this year (Pewter Badge at Yellow Mama and Seventy-Two Hours or Less at A Twist of Noir come to mind) but I'll arbitrarily pick this one.
Or not arbitrarily at all because it's so perfect. It's everything a short story should be. The pacing is dead-on--wrought with suspense right up to the ending. The characters are sketched efficiently with bright little details and imbued with a sense of history--no small task when using an omniscient narrator.
And Solender's incredible range is on display at his blog, not from here, are you?, where he publishes tightly crafted microfiction several times a week.
