In Maureen Orth's "Vulgar Favours" she writes about serial killer Andrew Cunanan:
He didn't really care whether they actually believed him or not, as long as they went along with the conceit. And while many found this charade harmless fun, psychologist Elizabeth Oglesby, who came to know Andrew well, as her next-door neighbour and housesitter, didn't think it was funny at all
I'm wondering about that last sentence. Would it have been better to write this?
as his next-door neighbour and housesitter
The original sounds wrong, to my ears anyway.
