This is a story about a man who is haunted by past war-time atrocities in which he had a small part. Working now as a building inspector, he sees and hears the dead continuously in the foundations of buildings - countless mutilated bodies stacked together like bricks and mortar - and tries desperately to appease them so he will be left alone.
Published 2003
