The Automaton's Wife
by Vered Ehsani
Beatrice Knight has enough to contend with: a zebra is dead on her lawn, her horse is possessed, a gentleman has arrived with the temerity to propose to her, and her dead husband has absconded with an automaton. She soon has other issues, for a killer has moved into town with a nasty habit of carving up the victims. As luck should dictate, who should be the next target but Mrs Knight herself?
