Synopsis of The Killer and the Slain

As boys, Jimmie Tunstall was John Talbot’s implacable foe, never ceasing to taunt, torment, and bully him.

Years later, John is married and living in a small coastal town when he learns, much to his chagrin, that his old adversary has just moved to the same town. Before long the harassment begins anew until finally, driven to desperation, John murders his tormentor.

Soon he starts to suffer from frightening hallucinations and his personality and physical appearance begin to alter, causing him increasingly to resemble the man he killed.

Is it merely the psychological effect of his guilt, or is it the manifestation of something supernatural – and evil?

The tension builds until the chilling final scene, when the horrifying truth will be revealed.
