Publisher's Summary

A gripping short novella with a killer twist.

Stephen Lightfoot is a man of small means. He works at a supermarket, doesn't drive, and has no close friends. The one thing that keeps him going is his girlfriend, Anya. So when Anya disappears in mysterious circumstances, Stephen's life is turned upside down.

He knows she hasn't just walked out on him. Something doesn't quite add up. But there's no way Stephen could ever prepare himself for the truth.

Fascinating short story!

This is my first book by British detective novel author Adam Croft (who also narrates). The protagonist (well maybe he's not really a protagonist) is Stephen Lightfoot who works as a clerk at Tesco (Britain's huge supermarket chain). The story is very, very weird; its so weird that it is strangely endearing. It is worth the $1.99 I paid. I plan to try some of Croft's higher rated novels.

Great short story

Won this free book courtesy of the author. Plugged into the car and listened to it commuting to work. Got home just as the drawer was opened but don't worry won't spoil it for you and just had to listen to this last 15 mins. Had me in suspense as to what the main character had been up to. It didn't disappoint at the end.
Ideal read if you just want a short story as it's just about an hour.
The author is really keen to get his work known and regularly contacts his readers via the VIP club. It's great to have that contact with an author !
