The Babysitter's Code (kindle) by Laura Lippman



I think it was Stephen King who once commented that his short stories (or novellas) were books that just never took enough shape and form to become a book. He tried to tease out more out of the story but there was just nothing more to pull out of the story.

The Babysitter's Code is not that. There is plenty more to add to this story. It just builds up to the point where the reader is getting in to the story and then it just.............................ends.

Why?

Don't know.

Frustrating?

Very.

I rate this book 2 stars out of 5.

You can find this short story on Amazon.com here: The Babysitter's Code.
