"Prodigal Me" by JT Ellison

From: Killer Year ed. Lee Child. St. Martin's, 2008.

This is the story of a husband and wife who've come to accept long periods of silence between them. The wife narrates with enough wry wit to keep readers engaged but all the while wondering, Where's the crime?

The reveal is subtle but, having bought into the setup fully, I appreciated it.

Thanks so much for the review, Gerald. That story was a blast to write. Actually, it was the first short story I ever wrote. : )
