At school, no one looked at Steve unless it was to mock him. He was awkward, clumsy and a child cursed with acne.
Years later and school is over and Steve has grown into a fine, handsome man. Now when he walks down the streets, he doesn't get people crossing the road to avoid him, he doesn't get people mocking him or quietly laughing behind his back. They still look but for far different reasons. Men are jealous of him and his model-like looks and seemingly successful life and women want to bed him.
There's more to Steve than meets the eye though. His insides aren't quite wired the same way as other men and, despite the smiles and outwardly friendly personality that he gives off, he hasn't forgotten how people used to treat him. He hasn't forgiven them either and soon, all will regret laughing at him.

a condition of persistent mental and emotional stress experienced by someone who has survived an incident in which others died.
Connie (written by Aron Beauregard) and Ray (written by Matt Shaw) have both survived traumatic events where others were not so lucky. Whilst some survivors are grateful to have lived, others carry with them a heavy feeling of guilt. Why did I survive when others died? Could I have done something to help others escape too? For those with such uncomfortable and haunting questions, there are groups set up to help them find the answers they seek.

From the author of BELOW DECK, Sick B*stards and The Octopus Trilogy:
When Steve Chappo keeps having bad dreams and bouts of terrifying sleep paralysis, his wife - Beth - decides enough is enough and decides to take him away from the stresses of life with a surprise weekend of camping. With a want to get away from everything, she doesn't want to go to a busy campsite but rather go and stay somewhere more remote, where it would just be the two of them. Her hope being that a weekend of romantic walks, snuggling together in their tent and outdoor cooking on the campfire will help his tired brain and finally allow him the opportunity to rest and relax.
With work mounting and pressure from the big bosses, Steve isn't exactly keen to just drop everything and disappear into the wilderness. There's a worry that he won't be able to switch off properly and he'd only be putting himself further behind at work but - when the ghosts that haunt both his dreams and waking hours get louder and closer - he realises a break away from everything could be exactly what is needed and soon the two of them are headed off to the countryside for what they hope to be a peaceful weekend.
Once the tent is erected and the fire is roaring, they think they have found the perfect, romantic spot for their weekend. Little do they know, they're not quite as alone as they'd originally thought. They're being watched. They're being hunted.

Food in the fridge is rotten, there's cold water only. People, heading for work outside, have blurred faces and are seemingly moving on an ever repeating loop.

From behind it, she can hear people whispering but their voices are not human. Their voices are not welcoming.

‘Uncompromising and savage, Matt Shaw’s writing ensures that the future of the horror genre is in good hands.’ Shaun Hutson, author of Slugs.
When Jamie Lee arrives at the rented accommodation (her usual spot) to engage in a dirty weekend with the man she is seeing behind her husband's back, she hears the house phone is ringing. As it rings and rings and rings, she wonders if it might be Michael calling her. Perhaps to tell her that he is stuck in traffic and running late? Maybe he isn't coming? Something could have come up with his own family? With her mind in overdrive, not stopping to wonder how he even had the house number and why he didn't even call her mobile, she answers the phone...
It will be the last call she ever hears.
Warning: there are potentially upsetting scenes within this book. If you are easily offended, please do not read.
Billy Smith wasn't going to leave his wife, and certainly not for a whore. He had things "good" at home and had things "better" with being able to see Sherry whenever he wanted, and not be billed. Billy had the perfect life. Until, that is, he heads home after spending the evening with Sherry and sees his wife isn't there.
There's no communication from her, other than a text asking where HE is, and he can't reach her on the phone. She had simply disappeared. Just as Billy is about to call the police, he receives a mysterious package. Within the packet? There is a letter detailing how they know of Billy's affair. There is also his wife's severed tongue. If Billy wants the rest of his wife back, and to find out who did it and why, he needs to follow the trail of clues to each hidden package.
Taking the popular stories from the Bible and giving them a horror twist; this book is not intended to be used as a way of preaching your beliefs. God would probably frown down upon such usage, but if you wanted to put your feet up and chuckle along with some dark humour then - God would surely approve.
For fans of the original book, this isn't for you. You won't like this. Don't read it. Don't be mad at me for writing it though because, if you think about it, I am still getting the important stories out there. Kind of.
