Publisher's Summary

Delbert Mason has it all - or so it seems. His career is a success, and he is an important man in his small town. His future is mapped out. He knows just where he's going.
Until the night he strolls home late and sees a hearse and a limousine pull into the local cemetery. Who were those strange men by the hearse, and whose grave was that being dug nearby?

A good short story.

What does Pearl Hewitt bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

This short story is beautifully narrated by Pearl Hewitt. I found it very relaxing to listen to her soft, yet exquisitely executed tones as she reads this story about the rise to power of businessman Delbert Mason. A man on a mission, hardworking, determined and enjoying the best of life whilst he climbs the career ladder. The world is his oyster and he’s a man set to succeed.

In life, though, it is good to remember the Yiddish saying, ‘Man plans and God laughs.’

Any additional comments?

I enjoyed the story, and its twist, however, I have to admit I was slightly disappointed by the ending.
