Quite an interesting and enjoyable story, although the writing was quite basic.
The constant "I said..." and "Mary said..." style quickly got quite wearing, even though the actual dialogue wasn't bad. It needed more description, more imagery, more atmosphere. And does a story of such a short length really need to be divided into six chapters?
Still, the plot worked, and it found a successful balance between what facts to divulge and what to leave to the reader's imagination.

This was a interesting little short story that was very well written by little known author Quincy Simpson, and it's quite an exciting read. He has a unique voice and does a great job of drawing up a unique character who grabs your attention while still being easy to relate to. The story moves along at a nice pace, really sucking you in as it progresses, keeping you guessing as to what exactly is going to happen, and the finale doesn't disappoint. It's easy to read in one sitting, but I suspect I'll read it more than once. A great short story and on that I would definitely recommend checking out.
