The Boy in the Lot

The Boy in the Lot - Ronald Malfi

I had no idea that this is a companion piece to The Narrows and not a stand alone short. As such it doesn't really make much sense and has an ending that is abrupt and gives no idea of what the story is really about.
This wouldn't prompt me to buy The Narrows, it's a  poor advertisement for how good the novel might be. Shame, as I think Mr Malfi is way better than this.
