Warren Road by Peter Sellers

This is a short story in the latest Alfred Hitchcock Mystery Magazine. I've never read Peter Sellers before and I'm heartily glad I read this story. Very atmospheric. Creepy even, and I did not anticipate the twist at the end. Nicely done. Still, there is the feeling, I think, that this story could have been longer without suffering and probably with some benefit. This is a common complaint I have with crime short fiction but usually it has to do with the development of the characters. In this case, I think it has to do with wanting to see more of what the characters were up to.

There was also a plot point involving olives that I didn't quite understand. I take that to be my own slow-wittedness, however.

In any event, overall reading the story was time well spent.
