The Little Stranger - post III

Suddenly things start to happen with Roderick tormented by something which after a few incidents spills over into a fire. Faraday makes the mistake of breaking confidence and as a result convinces everyone that Rod is deranged and delusional and has him committed.

The problem is that if Rod was asleep and the fire wasn’t an accident then of course it is not so easy to dismiss.

Reading the story as it unfolds keeps you on your toes because although it is a leisurely read you have to concentrate on what must be clues that are being dropped into at various points.

More tomorrow…
