I loved this, a nicely eerie tone to the story and told very well. I aspire to write as well as this.
I loved the way it unfolded, the pace was brilliant for a short and the ending superb. I don't know much about 1925 (was this prohibition era?) but the information in the story seemed accurate and believable when reading it.
I would love to know the significance of the violin music though.
I liked this short story, the little twist at the end was very good. I didn't really warm to the characters until right at the end. I found the story didn't flow very well for me, I think this was because some of the sentences were very short and made the story seem a little stunted. Thats just my opinion though. I thought you dealt with a very emotional and soul destroying issue extremely well.
