Gripping story with vivid detail. Reminds me of wicked Haman who also fell victim to his own plot.
Londonesque with economy. Strong ending.
Irony . . . bleakness slowly engulfing the lurid reality of an evil plan. An anti-hero fails and sympathy sneaks away in the frozen woods. Excellent tension.
Terrific story--thanks. Would love to have my students read this with London.
