Plot or Premise
What I Liked
The focus of the story is on a homeless woman named Maggie who has disappeared, and one of her favorite resting places is covered in blood. On top of that, a mutilated corpse turns up with a very large knife that Maggie used to own. A corpse of someone who knew who Maggie really was, knew her past, and was therefore a threat to Maggie’s security. Some really seedy characters populate the story, including a two-bit child pornographer who has a heart of gold for helping street people.
What I Didn’t Like
Of course, there is the requisite protagonist-in-jeopardy part, but at least Andy isn’t automatically there to save the day.
The Bottom Line
Well done, and the best so far.
