"Rarely have I read descriptions that have left me gasping, in both their hilarity and their painful truth. A wonderful read." ―Louise Penny recommending G.M. Malliet's novel WICKED AUTUMNIs it ever okay to take the law into your own hands? That's the question at the heart of this original short story by award-winning author G.M. Malliet.
Maria Ignatius Jona writes an advice column - an "Agony Aunt" column - for the daily Santa Fe Orbital.
She inherited the column ten years before from her aunt Bettina, and soon discovered she'd also inherited her aunt's intuition and knack for helping people sort out their problems.
For friends as well as readers, Maria is always on tap for solicited advice. So when her good friend Jane invites her to meet for dinner to talk about something "important," Maria expects to be asked for the usual guidance on relationships and in-laws.
But the topic is far darker, for Jane's dilemma has to do with vigilante justice ... leading to murder.
