The Kill-Off
by Jim Thompson

Monday, July 9, 2018 - 12:00pm

Luane Devore's days are numbered. All her neighbors in the declining seaside resort town of Manduwoc want her dead. Some, like her young husband Ralph and his girlfriend Danny, want the thousands of dollars she keeps hidden under the mattress she spends her days resting on. Others want her to stop her malicious gossip--some of which could ruin lives. Told from multiple perspectives, The Kill-Off is the story of a woman not long for this earth. Who will finally take matters into their own hands, and when?
