Short story nominated for the Crime Writers' Association “Margery Allingham Short Mystery Prize”.

A wound without closure. A case unforgotten. Is it ever too late?

Tidying up his house one Sunday afternoon, retired old cop Amadeo Higgins finds a box from his past–inside it, a gun with a single bullet. Faced with old case files scattered on the floor, he recalls one particular failure, the kidnapping of a young girl. His conscience has not been able to bury it, even though more than twenty years have passed. Suddenly, Amadeo has a revelation about the origin of his grief. Holding that gun, he convinces himself: there are some cases worth reopening–but he ignores the dark pit he is about to throw himself into.
