About this title


'We often search for clues, but sometimes there are no explanations for the mysterious ways of life...' These eight short stories fulfil the idea expressed in the above quotation which is taken from the final paragraph of one of the stories. In all the stories the characters appear to live fairly straightforward lives, although the circumstances of their lives are not necessarily normal. Whether it is Lambert Hastings who appears to have lived two lives, or Darryl Leighton, a brilliant mathematician working for the government, content with his life. Then something happens, something unaccountable, with no real reason. How did this person die, and why? Sometimes it is just a disappearance with no body. Is that person still alive, but somewhere else? Those left behind struggle to find meaning, explanations that will allow them to close a chapter in their lives and try to move on. But sometimes there are no explanations.
