A Political Issue

I'm going to streamline things a little today because in reality I'm at football camp right now.  "A Political Issue" is a short story by Janice Law that appeared in the September 2013 issue of Alfred Hitchcock's Mystery Magazine.  As with most stories from AHMM, I liked it.

Characters: interesting; a little odd, but quirky isn't too bad a character trait; motivations are tough to decipher.

Setting: a little bland, but it didn't need to be great for this story to work.

Plot: because of those iffy motivations, I'm not sure if the story should have happened in the first place; as it was, I would have liked more Act II before Act III.

Overall: Not bad; 88%
