Ballard, a British author, and was published or made available in the year 2000.

The storyteller, Paul Sinclair, together with his wife, Jane Sinclair, move to Eden-Olympia after Paul quits his post as an editor and publisher of aviation journals and his wife is offered a job as a clinician in the park’s private clinic.

After hearing the stories about Greenwood and the kind of person he was, they become curious on why such a respected, loved and silent person could decide to kill his
