"Vera Westing awakes to the sound of glass shattering. She jolts upright in her bed. She thinks it is a dream until she hears the click of a lock being turned.
Her palms are cold. And wet.
She hears another pane of glass crash to the floor in probably a million pieces. Then the old creak of a door being opened.
Panic sets in.
She isn't expecting anyone. That's for certain."
- Leanne Otto, Moonlight Sonata, Studio One, Volume 41
