TO MONIKA WITH LOVE

 'There are three thousand six hundred seconds in an hour. One of them was enough for my death.

Death! As if I cared! It's the notion of my finality that drives me mad.

Like an empty shell, my body is sucked into the quicksand. It's soft, it's infallible, it’s without return.

I don't know where I'm going.

I don't have anywhere to go.

I am FREE.

Light, detached, fluid. Sensations blown out.

That's ALL.

DEATH ... a tasteless, bland, insipid feeling. The sweetish scent of chrysanthemums above a misty graveyard.

Voices call.

Steps bustle about.

The vanity of sounds makes me sick.

Let me alone!

Let the dead rest in peace!'

"Don't lift him up! Wait for a doctor."

"He may consider himself lucky. Any other car than a Rolls would have been smashed to smithereens."

"Who is he?"

"Look at his driving licence. He should have it on him."

"Better not touch him. He looks so peaceful. As if he were asleep."

"I hear the howl of the sirens. It must be the ambulance and the police car."

"That poor fellow! How old is he?"

"Hard to guess. About fifty, I reckon. He's well-cared for and smart! Look at his clothes! That jacket must be worth a bundle!"

"It's genuine suede! And his jumper is pure cashmere."

"They are smeared with blood. What a waste!"

"He can afford it! A Rolls costs a pretty penny!"

"Have you seen his nails? They are manicured! And his hair looks sort of funny."

"That's highlights! He must be one of them, you know, them, the fags!"

"Here comes the doctor. Push over! Let him through!"

The surgeon kneels down by the injured man and feels his pulse. The ambulance attendants put the casualty on a stretcher, cover him with a blanket and carry him into the rescue car.

Bri Hoffer: I couldn't put it down!! The characters are all incredibly likable, and it's so descriptive you can see, smell, and feel thier surroundings. Great story, and very well written. I cannot wait for follow up stories. there were a few grammatical errors, but nothing that I could move right over.

Katy Rayne: i really enjoyed this book. i have to say i didn't know what to expect, but with every chapter that came something crucial to keep you reading happened. I was disappointed with the ending if this is for another book i will defiantly carry on reading the next book.

263Adder: Okay so I adore this story. I only knocked one star off plot for historical inaccuracies because I'm a bit of a stickler for that. The ending broke my heart though, considering you already changed history couldn't you (SPOILER) change it a bit more and have them together!!!! I want an alternative...

Giuliana Cassetta: My face is full of tears, I never cried like now with a book or even a movie. I loved every single chapter. I truly don't know what to say, I'm out of words and my eyes hurt from crying. Such an bittersweet story, it's so wonderful. One of my favorites for sure. Keep it up!

JONANNA: As an avid reader it is not often I say that about a book. The plot is what was different and the twists where unexpected. This book is defiantly a page turner and enjoyable read. I can't wait to reread this novel after a little editing to finish off the shine on this wonderful novel.

maewilde25: I liked this, though it dragged on for over 200pages and heaven knows I did not expect the plot twist in the middle. David being Cristiãn.

emmaneal74: I loved this booked. Would definitely buy it when published and read it again. The story flowed in such a way I just couldn't put it down.
