Jennie Jones | 1 comments A worker goes to stay in a boarding house in a seaside town. It is set sometime around the 1940s to 60s. The protagonist gets upset at another tenant. In the night, he creeps into his room and bludgeons him to death with a hammer. He then goes on the run. The newspapers describe him as a monster. The book is written from the point of view of the murderer, who feels his victim brought it on himself. The murderer feels that he ist the innocent party, and that the manhunt and the terrible things being said about him are unjustified.
