The hostage and the captor; the voyeur and the performer; the teacher and the pupil. Here exists a line that should never be crossed – but what if it were? Three full-length thrillers about the contorting effects of taboo. THE SHUTTERED ROOM Little do they know their captive holds a deadly secret. Jess is taken hostage and incarcerated in an upstairs room by three thugs holding her to ransom. In a bid to escape, she cuts a hole in the bedroom floor with a cutlery knife. From there, Jess observes the three of them going about their business. That’s when she starts playing games with them. That’s when her spying pulls her into a treacherous psychological game involving a twisted version of Stockholm syndrome. If only they knew what their captive was up to. FALLING AWAKE “People would do anything for money,” spits a sinister moneylender, to the distaste of Gemma, a single mother facing homelessness. To save her home, she performs for a client. Thus begins an uneasy relationship between a voyeur and a performer. If only she knew the sort of man her client was. She wouldn't perform for him. She is about to find out what it is like to be psychologically tied to someone she fears most. A HARD LESSON Sarah thought she was teaching a schoolchild a little English. How wrong she was. Not only is her subject a full-grown thug, he is dyslexic and part of a criminal clique headed by a psychopath. And this psychopath doesn't like people interfering with his business. Soon, she will learn the meaning of treachery. And fear. Novels also available singly.
