New Brighton

ebook
"A gripping thriller . . . I was on the edge of my seat! . . . my heart was pounding!" —Amazon reviewer, five stars
"The Handmaid's Tale meets Blade Runner. A powerful tale of control, love and family in a brave new world where nothing is as it seems." —M. Sean Coleman, author of The Cuckoo Wood
Her future is about to change. So is her past . . .
In the English seaside town of Brighton, Robyn Lockhart has a boyfriend named Vincent, a frail, sickly sister, and a mother who keeps a lock on one of the cupboards. These things she knows. Other things are much foggier, and it's not because of the drugs or alcohol. For example, Tiffany—the tattooed bartender she befriends after an ugly fight with Vincent. She seems familiar, and she appears to know Robyn. Is this the start of a new relationship or a continuation of one?
While Robyn connects with Tiffany, a vicious storm hits the city, punctuated by a deafening roar in the middle of the night. The next day, the source of the sound is revealed: a battered ship has run aground on the beach across from Tiffany's apartment. Authorities arrive quickly. The gawking crowds are forcefully driven away as a noxious gas fills the air. Oddly enough, news outlets make no mention of the event.
For Robyn, the mystery surrounding the beached vessel is as disturbing as the question of her sanity. As she tries to sort out what is real and why she's unable to remember certain details, Robyn will discover to the truth about herself, her family, and the place she's always called home.
