Joel is an excellent writer and his technical skill is very much in evidence in this vignette. The story is about endurance and wit. My wish is that Brenda, the remarkably levelheaded victim, had used a bit more wit and tried talking to her attacker since they'd come to a stand-off. Still, it’s a very good short read.
