In this noir short story from Bill Pronzini two strangers meet in the fog as one, Hannigan, is digging a grave on his property. The other, a large shadowy figure asks to use a phone and whether or not Hannigan has heard about the escaped lunatic on the rampage. Stacy Keach performs the audiobook, giving the characters unique voices and the narration a dark gravity recalling radio plays of the past and the serious and morose tone of an Orson Welles or Vincent Price. The story goes from mystery to fear with the swirling uncertainty of the titular fog.
A fascinating, dark, and gripping "Nameless Dectective" story.
