    During the Columbian Exposition, he lured victims into his elaborate 'Murder Castle. He turned to his wife. References to his good looks had been unbearable when he was sixteen. Andrews is a free-lance writer living in New York City.

    Perhaps the houses were recycled — he didn't know. Time had not withered away the sacrosanct habit. This can only mean one thing: crisis.
