A short story by Guy Cullingford
'See my finger's wet
See my finger's dry
Slit my throat if I tell a lie . . .
'When a young girl approaches a man reading by a tree, warning him of a murder, he rushes to help. However, upon the disappearance of the girl - the only witness - he finds himself the prime suspect and shunned by the community.
After managing to track down the young girl, Ruby, he sets about his own investigation but, when push comes to shove, can he bring the murderer to justice?
