When unemployed Peter finally gets a job with a charity which helps the homeless with meals he gains a sliver of independence and self respect. With his new sense of self pride, Peter starts thinking murdering Delores isn't such a bad idea after all.

My Review of the only book I have read and probably will read of Michael's due to my intense fear of scary things!
This morning I was able to take a bit of time this morning to read an intriguing short story by Michael J Elliott.
Mr Westacott's Christmas is the story of Bernard Westacott. The story is beautifully written and painfully heartbreaking. Michael J Elliot painted a detailed picture of Bernie's life. A full story of this character's life would be welcome.
