Featured Review on this writing by Michael M Mann

Andrew, a fisherman, finds a body of a young lady floating in the water near his favorite fishing spot. Two days later he finds another, but it turns out to be the same body. And this time she is alive.

*This is very much a work in progress. I have a 70,000 word, 50 chapter, first draft completed, but I want to re-work it before I share the whole thing. In the meantime I have decided to share these first few chapters, hoping that some of you would offer some thoughts and input on the whole project.
* The cover drawing is actually a reference to something that happens much later in the book, so please don't try to make it fit in any of these fice chapters.
