One other disturbing (or potentially confusing) thing involves how the
first letter of Millie arrives ... her name is Millicent Kay Dunn (m k?)
... she advises bax not to trust Doris and to go for Martha Murrey instead
. That seems like a web too far, but in my writeup I discuss the chain of
possibly supernatural things that leads to Millie’s letter being found at
the end of it. Dissing Doris and endorsing Martha would be in line with the
supposed MO of a jealous kikimora but how on earth could we ever presume to
think Millie is anything but a goal post for Bax?
While I love solving puzzles, there seemed to be far less off the page in
many earlier works. I really don’t like reaching for things, believe it or
not. Mary King and the presence of the long fingered funky handed guy
shaking down some dude about Bax’s friends in prison, with accounts of that
man in newspapers from exactly 40 years ago, bax’s Age and Martha murrey’s
apparent age, all seems like it should add up to something. Even the
wolf/bear murders - there are three. Only one is a man, setting it up as
“different” and real. The others are Martha’s neighbor (remember Mrs.
nabor?) and a nurse (Martha always wanted to be a nurse.) the third is some
guy ... huh.
