Counting Chickens by R. H. Dixon is a tease of a story...the scarecrows had me hooked, with mounting suspense, until the shocking reveal...and then, the end. ARRRGGH! What an abrupt ending. Dixon should pick this story up again and continue with the mystery of Stonybridge. There's so much material to work with, within these few pages.
Nothing quite like a good ol' fashioned suspense story to begin the week...
