The week I spent in South Village, 500 miles from home, caring for my ailing cousin, was the most terrible week of my life. Not because of my cousin’s needs, but because of a local character, Maxine Fang. The folk in and around South Village called her Mad Maxine. The less they were willing to talk about her, the more my curiosity burned.
The next thing I knew, there were two ordinary dogs in front of me. Standing just behind them was Maxine Fang. “You’re Tabitha’s cousin, aren’t you?” she was asking. “Why don’t you finish your walk with us? We’ll make sure you get home safely. The woods can be a bit spooky sometimes, but you’re all right.”
