Thriller Shots 1: A Random Act
She needs urgent help, but is the ‘Good Samaritan’ everything he seems?

‘It was the eyes. I saw something in them. A memory, a vulnerability, hidden behind the glazed mask. A different life, one I’d long forgotten. I didn’t need to get involved. A violation of my parole. The fact that I’d stopped, lingered a moment longer than everyone else on the sidewalk, that in itself was enough to put me back inside.’

Thriller Shots 2: Let Him Go
A disgruntled detective takes the law into his own hands

‘He’s innocent until proven guilty in a court of law, but the CPS won’t even bring him to account. So the system fails on the so-called lack of evidence. Now, would you really want me to go home on a Friday night and forget all about it?’

Thriller Shots 3: Long Time Coming
Alcohol and pent up emotions are never a good mix

‘I was so off my tits, I couldn’t bring my eyeballs down from the top of my head. I’d spent the entire evening slobbering into my beer like a gibbering wreck, much to Kyle’s amusement.’

Thriller Shots 4: The Homecoming
They’ve gathered for a family funeral, but who’s the uninvited guest?

‘I got choices. I could walk right up; tap any of them on the shoulder. They’d kill me in an instant if they recognized me that is. I’m not disguised, least not in the conventional sense.’

Thriller Shots 5: The Night Before
A drunken night out leads to amnesia, but what the hell is that smell?

‘My sudden movement causing my head to throb, a slow dull ache behind my left eye. I swallow hard. Throat dry, feels like a dirty old ashtray.’
