The Hollow Woman

(2020)
A Novella by

 
 
New baby. No sleep. Nasty Neighbor. Any woman might SNAP.

A story of obsession that first appeared in Ellery Queen's Mystery Magazine.

Cathy’s dream of new motherhood has turned into a surreal nightmare. Her darling baby never sleeps, her husband is always on the road, and her own mother lives far away. Her world has gotten very small: a crying baby, an empty fridge, and a view of her only neighbor's house across the cul-de-sac. You'd think an older woman living alone would sympathize with her, and maybe even help a girl out. But the strange red-haired woman cuts Cathy dead. Try as she might to convince herself that everything is all right, that she has everything she always wanted, and is in control of her life, reality sends her into a dizzying spiral. When it all comes to a shuddering stop, she realizes there is only one solution to all of her problems.
