He’s The One by Cynthia Benjamin

by Barb Goffman

From the anthology Murder New York Style: Fresh Slices (L & L Dreamspell 2011)


Henry Stern never thought he could attract a beautiful girl like Elyse, given the great discoloration on one of his cheeks. But he does, and everything’s wonderful, until Elyse spots the man who raped her. Stanley, Elyse , and the rapist all work in the same building. Henry doesn’t reflect on this coincidence. He’s merely determined to get justice for Elyse. Is she using him? Or is something else going on?
