The story that I liked the most was ¨lamb to the slaughter¨´ I liked the ARGUMENT I had. Mary Maloney, the loving and submissive wife anxiously awaits the arrival of her husband to receive him as he deserves after an exhausting day as a policeman. He arrives taciturn and worried, and at the insistence of the woman to dine something, informs him of his decision to leave her. The impact that the news has on her is of such a magnitude that, without thinking just about it, she goes to the refrigerator to make dinner where she finds a frozen leg of lamb with which she beats her husband hard causing her instant death. When detectives arrive at the scene of the crime they find a wife crying the dead man with a perfect alibi and unable to find, however much they seek, the murder weapon.
