Will his obsession lead him to inadvertently discover the truth that lies behind her many methods of disguise?

Meanwhile, a new lover is slowly drawn into Anna’s inner social circle, placing yet more pressure upon her to find a way to preserve her true identity. But not every secret can be kept forever…

Book Excerpt:

from The Wine Cellar

Several minutes later, he still had not reached the end of the corridor. This is insane, he thought. It’s no more than ten yards to the wall. The light remained the same size but now became clearer; it was the illuminated part of a doorbell. He reached out and pressed the brass button in the centre of the light.

Footsteps sounded beyond the light … they stopped … the sound of a handle turning … a crack of light appearing, and edging a doorway … then the door opened. Framed in a soft, golden light stood a man. It was impossible to make out any details as the backlight cast a shadow.

‘Sebastian, I’ve been expecting you. Please, do come in.’ The voice was mellow and clear.

Book Excerpt:

Anna, she was ever a conjecture, a guess, tentative and gambling, adverse to prediction. Beautiful like an uninhabitable planet, a painted snake. Venus fly traps in full bloom, delicious poison.

And so it became a Monday night, calm and no different from any other. He parked his Sedan nearby and marched up to the front of the complex. People came and went around him, oblivious to the magnitude of concern that pervaded the air like equatorial humidity. James punched her room number into the keypad. The intercom buzzed for a moment, then it was Anna’s voice on the line asking him to identify himself, which he did. He was cleared to ascend, legitimately for once. It was a smooth ride to the fourteenth.

What others are saying:

“It has elements of mystery, romance, drama, and even some sexual themes, but delivers something that is more than just the sum of those.” – Hannah, Amazon Reviewer
