I lived in Greensboro, North Carolina from the time I was 14 until I left to enter the Air Force when I was almost 23. I have not thought of Greensboro for a long time, but when I finished this outstanding and exceptionally well written short story by Rebecca Scarberry, I thought of Greensboro. Greensboro is the birthplace of William Sydney Porter, otherwise known as O’Henry. O’Henry is one of the world’s best short story writers whose short stories are known for their wordplay, humor and the twist endings.
This story starts out appearing to be straightforward crime story where the protagonist is being framed for murder in which he inadvertently becomes involved when his young four year old son finds a “rag doll”, a dead body, while on vacation in Murfreesboro, Arkansas.
The story begins what the reader feels is a predictable path with suspense building with almost every page until we arrive at the end when the surprise twist is revealed.
My question is: Are we reading the new Miss O’Henry of 2013?
I cannot wait for more stories from her.
