Christopher Ropes wrote an eerie and unsettling novelette. I’m jaded and so read it looking for the seams and zippers and wires. It stirred my unease despite all that. Ropes does a lot with atmosphere and dread. The characters are sharply drawn, as is the setting. I am interested to check out more of his work.
Complicity is out of print at the moment, but I hear it’s coming back. Keep a watch.
