She launches into a tirade, telling him how cross she is that he disappeared without a by-your-leave etc, when he cuts right across her and, for the first time comdbacks his life, tells her to SHUT UP. Others, such as “Used in Evidence,” are perfect gems, with nothing more to be added. Here read a sample of the first story and decide for your own comeabcks.
Eventually the meal is over and it is obviously bedtime.
Monday, March 24, I picked this up and was hooked on page one. A solid collection of short stories, each with a nice twist.

He has got away with, effectively, murder — scot free — and reassures himself with the thought that the snake, having no mate, will live eventually die and his secret will be safe forever. It goes all right until the week after when the photographs appear fodsyth his mail and the muffled male voice on the telephone threatens to expose him to his wife, his club, his workplace.
