... I seem to recall that Coyoacan was the name of the alternate-universe town. (What it MEANS is another question entirely. It sounds vaguely Aztec ...)

Another possibility is that Jack got to 'ride along' on Jacque's murder -- the resonance between similar minds in similar circumstances allowed him to experience his counterpart's actions. (If the minds and circumstances were similar enough, it might feel like Jack was in control even if Jacques was acting on urges (and plans) of his own.)

Reminded me of Edgar Allen Poe as little.

Good use of showing coupled with nice character development that continued through-out the story.

The story held one’s interest from beginning to end, and the writing clear with no sharp breaks or un-necessary words. Easy to follow yet mature in usage.

A psychological story with one’s inner thoughts displayed on a stage?  A venture into an alternate universe, an alternate state of reality? Who knows except the reader, and each reader will have an opinion driven by his/her own muse. And that’s the way a story like this one should  be!

One of the better stories.
