Adieu La Vie
by Peter Robert Scott
A woman is murdered. She and her son have lived as outcasts since the Occupation, reviled by fellow villagers - she for cohabiting with a German officer, he for being fathered by him - and no one is surprised when the son is convicted of the murder. Years later, an unassuming widow tries to kill an old man in a nursing home. Even at the dawn of the new millennium there are accounts to be settled.
