Lamb to the Slaughter
In a quiet suburban home like any other, a husband and wife with a baby on the way spend their nights with the same quiet and relaxing routine. He would come home and sit in his chair by the fire while she poured him a drink. They would chat and he would tell her about his day as a detective and she would fix dinners, with the exception of Thursdays, when they would go to eat out. The townfolk all knew their fellow townsmen and all was well.
Our story begins on a Thursday night, where the routine is thrown off course when Patrick Maloney comes home to his lovely wife Mary with bad news that changes their lives forever.
