Luke Adams investigates Book 1 Client - Megan Armstrong
Written in the style of modern British T.V drama, this is the story of Megan Armstrong, who becomes embroiled in this emotionally charged thriller, brimming with suspense, abductions, a mysterious disappearance and a raft of suspicious activity.
Megan's patience is exhausted, she's will not tolerate any further abuse. She makes a major decision, it's time to leave her Yorkshire home to establish a new life. It must be on her own terms despite the consequences. As the train journey draws closer to her destination, Megan's mind is swamped by a rapid series of violent images. She has neither recognition of the vague faces, nor any recollection such an incident.
Megan's arrival in this small town of Rodley disconcerts some of the local community, for she closely resembles Saskia, who left town 30 years ago. Buried in the depths of Megan’s subconscious are the answers. Her life is enveloped by frustration and fear, too shocking to remember . . . too shocking to forget . . . fatal to ignore. Amidst the perilous encounters there is an unwanted revelation, a struggle for justice.
