Review by: Rick Friedman on Nov. 19, 2010 :
Quite simply- BRILLIANT-astory that has so many facets to it- character.plot and so very vivid location- which to me was also a main character- a story not simply to read- but to savor!

Review by: Rosemary Miles on Oct. 5, 2010 :
I really enjoyed this short story. In fact, I wish it had been longer so that I didn't finish it so quickly. The author obviously had good knowledge of police procedures as the atmosphere he created of the police station and questioning was totally believable and the ending was completely unexpected. I'm looking forward to more short stories in the not too distant future.
