*** Willnot by James Sallis

It’s hard to describe the story in Willnot, because it’s not so much a crime story (there are many corpses, or rather skeletons) but more the description of a couple, a small-town physician and his partner, a teacher (they are both men), who together may be the most inspiring literary couple I encountered this year. If you are looking for a good  police investigation, you can find it elsewhere, but for a thoughtful, perfectly described domestic story, read this.
