Trespass: A Tale of Mystery and Suspense Across Time

Three stories, separated by five thousand years, united by one deadly secret:  Somewhere, sometime, the stone is waiting. Trespass combines gritty, edgy modern-day action with a thrilling adventure across time. Discovered over 5,000 years ago, the Darkeningstone affects everyone who finds it. Jake was too smart to believe the rumours about Scaderstone Pit, but when he ventures inside and meets the beautiful Cally, all thoughts of danger are dismissed from his mind. But the risks are very real, and Jake is meddling with forces he cannot understand. What is the Black Stone of Scaderstone? And how can he explain the strange things that happen when he touches the stone? In 1939, as World War II looms, Scaderstone Pit is a working quarry. But when two men venture into a forbidden area, their lives will be changed forever. Over 5,000 years ago, a hermit worships the stone and the power of the Shades. He'll do anything to protect the stone's secret. But someone is watching him – someone with murder in his heart. Soon, he must decide how to act. What will happen when these different worlds collide? How will the tales unfold? And when it finds you, what will you see when you look into The Darkeningstone?

Don't be afraid. They're just stories, aren't they?

Sometimes that noise you can hear upstairs is just the old floorboards creaking as they settle down for the night. Sometimes.

But there's no need to worry because, that face you saw at the window was just a reflection. There's no one else here. You're alone. But that's OK because you're safe in your bed. And all those things you fear deep down in the dark reaches of your soul… well, they only happen in stories, don't they? A Dark Assortment is a collection of seventeen stories; a chocolate box of handmade treats. But beware – beneath each richly decorated shell, there's a seed of delicious darkness. These stories with a twist are perfect for fans of Edgar Allan Poe, and if you enjoy books like Ray Bradbury's “Illustrated Man” and Roald Dahl's “Skin” then we'll get along just fine. Oh – before I go, I'll wish you all Sweet Dreams.
