Description
							Ned Wallis knows he's forbidden to touch the rifle in the attic. But he can't  resist sneaking it out of the house, just once. Before he realizes it, Ned  takes a shot at a dark shadow. When Ned returns home, he's sure he sees a face  looking down at him from the attic window. Who has seen and heard him? Ned's  feelings of guilt and fear only get worse when one day, while helping an  elderly neighbor, he spots a wild cat with one eye missing. Could this be the  thing Ned shot at that night?
