I was caught up in the story from the beginning.
David J Rodger knows how to forge a story to the end where the reader (in this case, me) needs to know what happens and how the the story will resolve.
As Rodger says, and I quote, ‘it’s an odd little short’ but I found my reaction to the story and the characters interesting. I can’t say too much because even a little would be a spoiler for those who have not read it. All I can say is, read Killing Candy and take note of your reaction at the end.
