The Judas Cat by Dorothy Salisbury Davis

A hate-filled town was afraid to call it murder…
A strange victim – Hillside had always dismissed 92-year-old Andy Mattson as simply a strange old codger – a name parents used to scare their kids into behaving.

Then one steaming summer day the town was rocked by news of his death… his violent death. Chief Waterman spoke for the whole town when he said: “It just don’t make sense that anyone’d try to kill the old man… What’s the use of risking your neck when he was going to kick off any day?”

But in this seemingly respectable town there was someone who couldn’t wait – a fear-crazed killer whose guilt drove him to MURDER!
