A strange, gruff mainlander rents a house in a smal local neighborhood (feels very local Windward side to me). He’s a loner, does nothing with anyone else, rarely leaves his house, doesn’t even have a dog!
The man living in the house next door to him, on the other hand, is friendly, visits with people, and fits right in.
Which of them – or both – is a murderer? In Alan Gunn’s skilled hands, don’t be so sure you know …
So go buy the anthology, read the story, and take your guess!
