When a traumatized mining foreman is placed under the psychiatric care of Dr. Vincent Armstrong, the doctor thinks he has started just another shift. But as the victim begins to remember what drove him temporarily insane, Armstrong's interest becomes personal, and he makes a series of discoveries that threaten to tear apart his carefully constructed scientific view of the world, and show in horrifying clarity that his patient is anything but delusional.
As Armstrong's world falls apart, his recovering patient learns that he has not escaped the horrors he encountered underground, and that no place on earth is truly safe from The Tunnelers.

I loved this story!
Although it is a very short story, it had to successfully make its point in a minimal number of words, every word counts in a short story. The rising tensions in the story were carried well till the end. I truly was on the edge of my seat and very sorry to have it end.
Darlene Allen did a commendable job of narration and I understand this story is Geof Ganders first published story. Well done both of you! I will keep on the lookout for your next work!
