Review: Not Any Little Girl by Trent Zelazny

A ten-minute suspense play on Amazon, first performed in Santa Fe.  

Grant Harrington, a new comer to New Mexico, wants to rent from Cora Newsted a coffee house in town.  But he's actually there to murder Cora's seventeen-year-old sister, Lecy. Grant doesn't want to do it, but the people he works for are putting the screws on him.  Lecy, though, is pretty worldly and suspects Grant's interest.  She's got her own game.

The set-up seems a little elaborate, renting a coffee shop just to kill someone and the person who has a different agenda, but the tale has a pleasant twist--that is, an unpleasant kind of pleasant.
