Hmm, this was just ok.
The set-up should have been mystery gold:
a group of septua- and octogenarians (not represented nearly enough), begin receiving prank phonecalls with the caller stating "remember you must die"!
But instead of dotty, we get petty. Instead of course-corrections, we get unlikable characters stuck in their ways.
Instead of a whodunnit, we get a non-ending.
Very good dialogue, however, and I do see why Spark's writing is revered.
At least it was short.
