Publisher's Summary

No one likes Jack. His wife is gone and his neighbors avoid him. He's a recluse and a creep, and that's just the way he wants it; he can ignore what they say behind his back if they leave him to his work and his daily walks. But when ten-year-old Emma goes missing in the nearby woods, the eyes of his neighbors turn toward him, their fear and accusations escalating as the days go by. Jack proclaims his innocence, but what the neighbors - and the listener - find out is the last thing anyone would suspect.

Previously published as Finding Emma.

Delightful short story!

The title is a bit misleading in that the word kindness is tongue in cheek, but The Kindness of Neighbors is a wonderful short story. Luke Daniels does a great job of narration.

Why novellas awesome

What did you love best about The Kindness of Neighbors?

Loved this novella. It really got under my skin...especially as a person who works from home. It's been a while since a story made me this anxious. :-)

True thriller

Great writing and narration. The creepy single guy all but accused of kidnapping an 11 year old girl by all of his neighbors. Loved the ending.
