The Cry of the Owl
Published by Diogenes as Der Schrei der Eule
Original Title: The Cry of the Owl
Robert Forester, a depressed but fundamentally decent man, liked to watch Jenny through her kitchen window – a harmless palliative, as he saw it, to his lonely life and failed marriage. As he is drawn into her life, however, the recriminations of his simple pleasure shatter the deceptive calm of the small town. Forester is caught up in a series of deaths in which he is the innocent bystander, presumed guilty.
