Frank's Back!!

I've recently been working on a new Frank McGill short story.  Frank is the character that I first introduced in "Blood on Their Hands" which was included in the excellent anthology "Action: Pulse Pounding Tales Volume 1".

Once I finished the first short it was obvious to me that Frank had potential for more.  I've deliberately spent quite a while on this one because I wanted the sequel to be able to stand alone as well as add to the overall story.  Now I've reached the point where it's almost done.

The second story will be called "An Eye for an Eye" and will be available soon.
As a bit of a tease here is a sneak preview of the front cover and opening paragraph.


An Eye for an Eye

Frank McGill wasn't sure if it was the mixture of drugs and alcohol coursing through his system that was making him retch or the smell from the stained mattress he was sitting on but, in the ten minutes since he came to, he hadn't been able to stand up to get away from it. His blurred vision and the constant thud, thud, thud in his head were not helped by the glare of the naked bulb hanging from what was left of the plaster board ceiling. Through squinting eyes, he looked over at the body in the corner of the room. He didn't need to check if the man was alive or dead, the pool of blood staining the bare floorboards told him all he needed to know.
