The stories are a kaleidoscope of genres – from humour, medieval history and fantasy to contemporary dilemmas, romance and fate – with a wide-ranging cast of characters and action-packed plotlines that will have you laughing out loud, reaching for the tissues and pausing for reflection.
SCARAMOUCHE is the second exciting collection of short stories by this talented author and it’s just as entertaining and beguiling as its predecessor.
‘Next of Kin’ is the story depicting every parent’s worst nightmare. In this case it’s Paul Bagot’s worst nightmare. That phone call… that rush to A & E… that unreadable doctor’s expression. What’s happened at the riding stables to little 8 year old Jenny?
From modern day life and death situations, to medieval history and all its trappings – ‘Scaramouche’ is a tale of the Colonel of the King’s Dragoon Guards. Filled with treachery, bandits, death, traitors and assassins, this is not a story for the faint-hearted. Brave Scaramouche has survived so many battles but the final news he has to deliver may be his most difficult test of all.
‘The Mexican Trap’ propels you into a lively sun-drenched Mexican market day filled with hustle and bustle. However, the scene quickly escalates into something much more sinister. Has Englishman, Paul Rogers (who has gone to Mexico for a bet), been mistaken for an international jewel thief? Bursting with exploits and escapades, this thrilling story will keep you rooting for the unlikely hero until the very end.
And this is just a sample of the high quality and broad range of the stories in this collection.
