Review by: David Rose on April 23, 2014 :
This is a great little story with, in my interpretation, a real twist in the tail (pardon the pun!), although I think Meranda has deliberately written the ending in a slightly ambiguous way. I was captivated by the story and the characters, particularly the protagonist. Very highly recommended.
