Horror / Thriller

Chapter 1

The air was humid on that night, I laid with my head against the old brick wall behind me, A scary thought this wall gave, the crumbled pieces around showed that even the strongest and most sturdy of things, can and will one day fall apart.

I was banging my head against the brick to the beat of the bells tolling in the distance, sad this was indeed, someone, somewhere had died, their life ended, who knows what they left behind, or who. And if they didn't have someone to leave behind, then that would be even more tragic, the only thing worst would be dying without a name.

After the last bell rang I took a long puff on my cigarette the but pinched between my thumb and pointer, then and there, it was my last cigarette, I decided this as I stood up. As I tossed the butt to the ground it seemed to fall in slow motion and as soon as it landed I heard the siren of an ambulance, could someone else be dying? What a night this is indeed, it would be close as well, the noise was getting louder. The air was really getting to me, my blood was too thick for this kind of heat, "I'll leave before the storm" I said to myself, my only real regret was I didn't say goodbye to her, she was far too kind for the likes of me I couldn't see what she saw, she had a way of always looking at the up side of things, and I guess for a guy that always has his eyes on the ground it just couldn't work.

Well, I do have another regret; I didn't get to say sorry. The sound of the ambulance got closer, and closer until I could see the flashing lights it stopped a few feet from me and a car pulled up beside, she got out. I thought it was fitting; how I walked through her as she ran to my body. I turned around a last time as she picked up my cigarette and uttered a single word before walking away. I don't know where I'll go, or where ill end up but I do have a regret, she didn't hear that last word..."Sorry"

harry142018: This story was gripping and very professionally written. With lots of twists and slight of hand tricks, the author deceives the reader until finally showing their cards at the end. With several subplots all intertwining to create the main plot, this really is an interesting and engaging read.

rachelrainford6: This probably has to be one of the best books I've read on here. I read it quite quickly and I'll have to say the story took a turn towards the end that I did not see coming. The topic discussed in this book such as life really gave me a new insight and I realize that it is taken for granted.

Jackie Marie Martuscelli: I haven't had a book keep me on edge like this for such a long time! It was great having that again. Normally I don't enjoy books that switch between points of view, but I loved it with this book. I thought that it worked very well. The storyline was great as was everything else. There were a few...

Kiz16: After a truly shocking start to the story, I found the style and content slowed down as the author introduced a varied group of characters who I thought were fleshed out very well. After a slow couple of chapters, I found this story difficult to leave with the tension growing within the house. Yo...

Deleted User: (A review in progress). I like this. It's sparse, gritty and atmospheric - reminiscent of the classic Golden Age of American detective fiction of the Thirties. I've only read the beginning, but I'll definitely be back. This writer knows their stuff and has done their homework on detective work. T...

smile4me: Exciting page turner. I was barely able to put it down to go to bed. I can usually figure out the twists before they are revealed but not this time! Such a thrill to be surprised. I can hardly wait for the follow up!!

taosgw74: If this is the authors first attempt at writing, I'm floored. I was engrossed in the plot from the get go.

ritafullerton: This book had me hooked at the beginning. I loved the premise of the book. The grammar was a bit off. But the book was overall good. I am not sure if this is the authors first book but I look forward to seeing more from this author.

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!
