"I've been feeling a bit confused ever since I met Hobbes."

"You know him then?" Doctor Finlay's voice registered surprise. "He's obviously a great bloke."

"Obviously. What about my flat?"

"I'm afraid you don't have one anymore."

"What happened?"

"It caught fire. You must know better than I how it might have started."

Maybe the doc was right but I didn't wish to think about it. Not then.

  1. Your page 56 makes the book sound a bit like Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy.

  10. Thank you Freda and everyone. The cover was designed by Cathy Helms of Avalon Graphics and the house in the picture is real - built around 1650, and is in the English Cotswolds.

Gabrielle Union stars as a woman who will stop at nothing to rescue her two children being held hostage in a house designed with impenetrable security.

Producers Will Packer (No Good Deed, Obsessed) and Union (Almost Christmas, Being Mary Jane) reunite for this original thriller directed by James McTeigue (V for Vendetta, Sense8).
