This is the title of the first chapter of 'The Storied Life of A.J. Fikry'. You can find a copy of this short story here

It will take you about 5 minutes to read it. It is very good, and makes me want to locate a copy of 'Someone Like You'.

Nunca habría imaginado que el autor que me entusiasmó de pequeña con Matilda, fuese capaz de escribir una historia en clave de novela negra sin dejar de perder los rasgos característicos que hacen tan disfrutables todas y cada una de sus lecturas.
Keith
A short mystery involving a murdered police detective and his wife and former colleagues.
Lauren
Predictable, but still fun!

I saw the Alfred Hitchcock Presents episode of this perhaps forty years ago. It made a strong impression on me, and I have never forgotten it. I didn't even know it was a short story until last week. When I heard one of my fellow teachers talking about it, I immediately tracked it down and read it. It was amazing. Suspenseful. Humorous. Dark. Light. Wonderfully ironic.

I read this story in English at school and thought it was quite good. It's not like Roald Dahl's other stories that i've read.

Lamb to the Slaughter is a murder tale that's ironically cute. It's a fun little read.

*3.5* this is a very short short story. It was written very well, but was not exceptionally good.
Bethany
Another bit of Roald Dahl magic, complete with the perfect crime and a generous helping of irony.

I read this in school, very different from normal murder mysteries but great noneoftheless!
Greg Mathews
Just a nice story about a woman who murders her husband with a lamb leg. I enjoyed it a lot!
