From the Cover:
Pammy has had enough of Bobby, her abusive drunk of a husband. One lovely spring day, she decides to kill him, despite the fact that they will soon be divorced and he will, at least in the eyes of the law, be out of her life for good. Indulging in homicidal daydreams for years has led her to devise her own perfect and completely bizarre plan.
Pammy has suffered for twelve long years at Bobby's hands, before he decided to leave her. And instead of questioning why, all she can do thank her lucky stars. But, when it comes time for dividing up the assets she has earned with the scars on her body, Bobby balks.
Even though it is he who wants out of fruitless marriage, he'll be damned if he gives Pammy the barest of considerations, even if it has been she who has suffered the beatings, bruising, and broken bones.
It all comes to a head for Pammy, when Bobby thinks he's going to take the only thing that is rightfully Pammy's, her childhood home left to her with the death of her mother.
Half Inch by McCarty Griffin is a short novella of a marriage gone terribly wrong. But, it's Bobby's deficit personality, his abusive nature, his lack of human capacity for true emotion that drives Pammy to the point of breaking psychologically. That's when her inner voice takes over, driving Pammy to make plans and come up with contingencies to remove Bobby permanently from her life. And, to her inner voice's delight, it's about time.
Half Inch is a quick little read, about a little more than an hour's worth of time. It reaches is conclusion with an ending where the reader maybe isn't surprised, but certainly fooled. Pammy's ultimate plans are foiled by Bobby even from the grave. Thriller/chillers lovers may want to take a look at this one, though short, it's fulfilling. I found myself hoping Pammy's plan succeeded, even if I did think her a little whiny, but then, I didn't have to put up with her abusive husband either.
