Synopsis for in The New York Review of Bird[]

1976: While speaking to his nephew, writer Cordwainer Bird, Allard "confesses" that he viciously murdered Margo Lane back in 1958.

His assertion should be dismissed as the delusional ramblings of an eighty-year-old man, since Margo Lane is still alive and well in 1978. His "delusional" statements are merely part of a cover.
