Amorphous: Lindsey and Beth separated by thirty years. Or so it seems. Their lives are about to collide, changing them both forever. Will a higher power intervene and re-write their past and future?
Legerdemain (Sleight of hand): Ten winners of a competition held by the handsome and charismatic billionaire, Christian Gainford are invited to his remote house in the Scottish Highlands. But is he all he seems and what does he have in store for them? There really is no such thing as a free lunch, as the ten are about to discover.
Broken: Sandi and Steve are thrown together. By accident or design? Steve is forced to fight not only for Sandi but for his own sanity. Can he trust his senses when everything he ever relied on appears suspect?
Insidious: Killers are copying the crimes of the dead psychopath, Devon Wicken. Will Jack be able to save his wife, Charlotte, from them? Or are they always one step ahead of Jack?
A series of short stories cleverly linked together in an original narrative with one common theme. Reality. But what's real and what isn't? Exciting action mixed with humour and mystery will keep you guessing throughout. It will alter your perceptions forever.
