As noted by one of the previous reviewers, this is not a conventional “who dunnit” - the focus is more on the emotions of the detective who dealt with the case. The facts of the murder and the subsequent investigation are conveyed briefly, leaving most of the detail to your imagination – but the emotional impact is clear from the effect it has on the central character. The result (for this reader at least) is that you end up reconstructing aspects of the more conventional “who dunnit?” narrative in your head - so that by the time you’ve finished, the overall impact is closer to what you’d get from reading a much longer piece. Good work!

Reading this story was enjoyable. It seemed somehow there was a sense of philosophy and psychology behind it. I liked the starting and the way you developed the story by describing the detective's deep thoughts. And the ending was wonderful, you said a lot in that last paragraph. Nice job...

A poetic, thoughtful short story which focuses less on the details of the murder depicted, and more on the inner life of the detective in charge of the case. Beautifully rendered, with a sympathetic, humane portrayal of the detective, and a quiet, slightly eerie atmosphere which suits the material.
