by Julie Smith
A place where he (or maybe she) can learn your secrets from your own mouth and then make friends over coffee. A supposedly “safe” place where anonymity is the norm. The horror who calls himself The Axeman has figured it out and claimed his territory – he’s cherry-picking his murder victims in the 12-Step programs of New Orleans.
