"Boys Will Be Boys" by Marilyn Todd

Ellery Queen's Mystery Magazine, May/June 2019, p. 191-92

You may have noticed I'm a fan of very short stories. The shorter the story, the more punch each word packs. I'm also a fan of dialogue, and Marilyn Todd's "Boys Will Be Boys" is all dialogue without attribution, presenting David Andrew Tyler and his domineering mum in slices of life, a macabre Mother's Day tale, if you will.
