An exclusive short story for members of the AJ Campbell Readers Club.
Warning signs presented themselves from the start. Flashing like the neon displays in Piccadilly Circus, they couldn’t have advertised things more clearly. But Abbie was too troubled to see clearly. Too damaged to see the dangers Tony Sharpe brought into her life. Until the day he pushed her too far.
DON'T COME LOOKING
A missing man. A desperate friend. A circle of deceit.
Would you refuse your best friend’s plea for help?
Marc O’Sullivan has disappeared.
His wife Sasha is frantic, and Eva is baffled.
Marc and Sasha were blissfully married with three kids. The perfect couple… or so everybody thought.
Sasha begs Eva to help her find Marc. But he has given a written statement at the police station where Eva works. It’s on record – when his family report him missing, Marc does not want to be found. But why?
Ultimately, friendship and loyalty override Eva’s professional integrity, and she is compelled to use her resources to delve into Marc’s life, even if it means breaking the police Code of Conduct and jeopardising her career. As each day passes, the mystery deepens. Murky goings-on from Marc and Sasha’s neighbours heighten the tension. What dark secrets are they hiding? And what drove Marc’s inexplicable actions in the weeks leading up to his disappearance? Behaviour so out of character, Eva struggles to tell Sasha.
Will Eva uncover the truth before it’s too late and lives are destroyed forever?
