Dutch by Richard Tornello

I like the indirectness of this story . . . right up to the end, and even after a revealing incident, nearly everything about this strange group of people is implied, rather than revealed. Generates a lot of curiosity. And, even though nothing is directly stated about what they are, the reader can't escape the conclusion.

Nothing about the story strains the reader's sense of credibility. Very smooth, with a nice element of humor added concerning the vehicle, as well as some other little mundane details that brought the setting to life.

Not much dialog, but what there was had a very natural feel.

Very nice job, Rick.
