Set in the lead-up to the new millennium:...It's 1999, and the dreaded "Millennium Bug' is threatening everything from the new craze of internet chatrooms, Instant Messaging, WAP mobile emails...to traffic lights and global security. But Gary Price isn't concerned with any of this. He's only concerned with his recent divorce, his estranged children, and his band, Black & Blue - who are on the precipice of massive success... ...Until tragedy strikes, and Gary's plate is loaded just that little bit too full. Gary Price doesn't know that he is insane—totally unaware of the twelve year-old personality co-existing with his adult identity. Carlin has two sides to his sexuality, and one of them is a sadistic killer. Dr Jones carries within him the ghost of a dead school friend. And across Internet chatrooms and continents, Carlin stalks Gary Price, to prepare him for the doctor, who will make Gary pay dearly for a crime that is thirty years old. A deranged school headmaster is intent on taking Gary back from the age of 42 to the age of 12. Because buried somewhere deep in Gary’s memory is a painful guilt from a childhood accident, in which his best friend was killed in an horrific school fire. And now the past is coming back – not so much to haunt Gary – as to make him suffer. The enigmatic assassin known as Carlin – or GiftHorse on the Internet – will make sure of this. For Carlin it’s merely a job. For the Headmaster whom he serves – it’s a mission of vengeance. (Contains some adult content | This is a second edition with updated content)

About the Author:

Gareth Stokes is the wrong side of young, the right side of stupid, the wrong side of rich, and the right side of starvation. Currently residing in the south-east of the UK, he is a greedy reader and enthusiastic reviewer, part-time blogger and full-time social network prowler. He is a fan of science fiction, mystery thrillers, and the supernatural, but will read just about anything if the product description is interesting. He is older than he looks (or at least that's what he's convinced himself), and probably drinks a little too much caffeine. Currently sprint-reading through indie books of all genres and having a great experience with them, he is usually to be found refilling a tea-cup like a man demented in a small room with a low light.
