Consenting Adults by Mark Edwards
Petra Krall, a Czech woman in search of her daughter-like employee, approaches private investigator Edward Rooney for help.
Upon investigating her last known address, Edward comes across a disturbing video on her former roommate’s iPad mini.
And the story takes off from there.
I am not much of a fan of short stories. Due to their length, I miss the development of the scenes and characters. Mark Edwards introduces us to Edward Rooney in Follow You Home, which mitigates the lack of character development a little.
I had a feeling I wouldn’t enjoy this as much as his other works, simply because it was a short story. But I give it 4-stars because considering how short it was, the plot was interesting and Mark Edwards did as much development as he could within the confines of a short story.
And in true form of the word short story, I give you a short review.
