The Photograph

In a quiet Sydney suburb, soon-to-be-married Sonny Day sets off on his bike to catch the train to work. He never makes it to the station. After his fiancée Chrys reports him missing, DI India Hargreaves launches a low-key investigation.

 

Weeks later, a man’s body is found, mutilated and buried, on a nearby building site, but it’s not Sonny, and with no solid leads, both investigations stall…until a letter arrives from Sonny, claiming he’s met someone else.

 

Chrys insists Sonny wrote it under duress. She convinces India to investigate further, beginning with the photograph that came with the letter and ending in Scotland and the discovery of more mysterious deaths. But two questions remain unanswered.

Whose body was buried on the building site? And where is Sonny Day?

Chasing the Stars and Hoping to Shag the Moon

This dip into the magical years of 1960 and onwards in Paris and London with my friend Cyclops is an attempt to recapture, with as much detail as possible, those early bohemian Paris days, days highly favorable to creativity and those London days of economic abundance that allowed enterprising people to develop their individual talents. For Cy, those years broke the rule that working class men did not go into book dealing or open their own businesses. For me, with little cash and no family help, I managed to open a boutique, establish the first textile designs studio in London, and later in Paris, to become a fashion forecaster to the world's top fashion houses and printers. My memoir, Technicolor Dreamin' - In her own fashion, was published in 2018.

Shadow of the Mothman

Doug leaned slightly to the side and touched the knob to click on the radio. Scratchy sounds. He slowed the vehicle for a moment to adjust the stations knob. Nothing but interference. So much for AM. FM would be better. He flicked the selection knob.

But before he could tune in a station, he heard a knock on his car window.

What?

A knocking sound.

But where? He was going fifty-five.

Rear window. Back seat window. Something striking under the vehicle.

Bam. Bam. Bam.

To his right. The passenger window.

No one was riding with him, so who could be knocking on that window?

Again. Three loud knocks.

Look and see. Turn your head slightly to the right to see.

No. He could not. He froze.

Turn and look!

No. The chills erupted through his system like a flooding of ice water. Nerves electrified.

It was as if he had just been struck by lightning from somewhere beyond his viewing range.

Bam. Bam. Bam. From the edge of his vision, the corner of his right eye, he saw what looked like a shadow of a human being with glowing red eyes. But at this speed?
