A TOWN OF MASKS

Hannah Blake, sex tortured and hate charged, evades the frame but not the picture of murder when she kills the object of her childish and adult envy, wealthy Mrs. . The pitfalls of her deadly ordeal, as she goes about her daily life -- in the bank, taking part in the library board, a poetry contest, and a mock air raid for Civil Defense her continued victimization of those too close to her secret, the little things that give her away end in a pitiful justice. A Lake Michigan town with its various social grouping makes an authentic background for a psychopathic portrait.
