Red Harvest #5


His story though didn’t really stack up; claiming he didn’t know the victim, an anonymous hobo, who’d just appeared from thin air in a psychotic attack, then tripped and fallen to his grizzly death in a struggle - surely a somewhat far fetched stretch of imagination?
But Calley had little time to think his story properly through before the police arrived on the scene - all that mattered was the pounding question that ricocheted inside his head - had he really committed murder or would a jury think it self-defence in the heat of the moment? He had to keep it simple.
