Rewind

Imagine yesterday.

Hit your mind's rewind button. You woke up fumbling for the shrieking alarm clock and you drank orange juice after brushing your teeth. You sniffed the clothes you wore two days before, deciding that you could wear them again. Rush hour was the usual, frustration and smog and middle fingers. An unfamiliar Mercedes was in your parking space. Your boss chewed you out in front of everyone for being late, even though that five-car pile-up was certainly beyond your control. Instead of taking a lunch break, you choked down a dry turkey sandwich while scrolling through endless work emails. You were unfairly scapegoated during the afternoon meeting by that backstabbing asshole Hendersen, never mind that he was the one that provided the wrong figures for the report in the first place. You were asked to stay late, even though you had plans, and the boss wasn't really asking because you knew that if you said no he would remember it the next time that people needed to be laid off. By the time you cleared everything out of your inbox, it was dark outside.

You wake up, knowing by the brightness of the street lights that it's only just past midnight. You wonder how long you've been asleep. You feel itchy. When you go to scratch, you find that you are still fully clothed, and that your clothes are covered with a sickening-feeling crust. The smell of stale copper fills your nostrils. It's on your face and in your hair and under your nails. You don't know what happened. You don't want to know what happened. You have to know. You have to know.

Imagine yesterday.

Spring: I normally don't read fiction novels, but I absolutely enjoyed reading Silent Shadows! The style is quite different from the previous fiction novels I've attempted to read.Great job!

William Elliott Kern: Long story, the plot uncovered midway through the story. From beginning, the story was fast moving. Then dragged on for quite some time. The Author was good in describing her characters, their clothing, etc. but a lot of that disclosure distracted from the story moving fast.Not withstanding, the...

William Elliott Kern: Whew. one telling his story, in the Bar, to his friend, who questions some circumstances that need clarity, The Confusion comes from a man, carrying his dead friend Chappies, while conversing with himself, and Chappies, and his alter ego......a broken mind, not yet forgotten..........The Author ...

Nishant Jain: I felt as if i am watching a movie,not reading a book. The story was definitely interesting. It was more of action than horror for me. There are a few grammatical and spelling errors I came across and at times I found it difficult to imagine some things which the author is trying to convey, but o...

emmawioskowski: Amazing book! I can hardly put it down!! I hope it gets published. From a writers point of view the detail is great, and the writing style is awesome. I haven't finished yet, but when I do I bet the ending will be just as good

NRF: This was a very interesting story line, although the author did not go far enough in explaining the war and why some received special powers and some didn't. I really enjoyed this story and look forward to reading more of this author's writing.

Nishant Jain: Plus points-* the story is quite interesting* well detailed(u can easily imagine andpicture what the narrator is trying to say)* huge twist in the endImprovements-- i feel the story unfolds a bit slowlyIt is definitely worth a shot. I have no regrets reading BREAKING POINT.

Jim E. Johnson: Rarely do I find a mystery that peeks my interest, but Jack Huber's Pat Ruger reminds me of Parker's Spenser or Spillane's Hammer! Strong character with the right connections and plot drivers to keep anyone engaged and never putting it down.The encounters of the characters Ruger engages, continue...

borkarprasad: Nicely laid story. Needed a little more ghost and Raven conversations. Initially, Had everyone on suspect list but satisfied by the precision to capture the killer. Waiting for more Raven and Cade adventures.

Steven Tesoro: The Symphony Of Life, as I read this I myself are homeless, not much of an income an occasionally, it crosses mostly everyones mind about doing the dirty. But it is worth the time to read this story and as I'm reading it thinking about getting my life back to where it should be, it's hard in thi...
