DescriptionThe sickening murders of two close friends, Imelda Hart and Mabel Bright, begin a terrifying and sinister journey into the strange happenings of a small English town where sleep can mean torture, extreme psychological torment, and ultimately death for millions of other people worldwide. To fall asleep means to be watched by those who have appeared from nowhere and sleep when their work is done. The long, black, deathly cars patrol the streets now owned by this group of unknown, evil and crazy men called the Masters. On the streets their drones, powered by thoughts and callous orders, collect wandering spirits and still wide-awake souls for the nightmarish world they have created. Min, Ritchie and their friends find themselves caught up this seemingly unending hell. The Masters can take you when you are awake and also while you sleep, in a place where the real world and the imaginary one collide with devastating consequences. The Masters and drones are symbols, symbols of something else, deep within the subconscious mind, creating a strange scenario that just won't let anyone go - not today, tomorrow or at any time in the future, whether in this world or the next. About the AuthorBorn in Wrexham, North Wales without a plan but as it sometimes does, destiny came calling. It put a pen in Mark Jones' hand and many stories in his mind. Where this particular idea came from is a mystery as big as why it was given to him, but he hopes others enjoy the story as much as he enjoyed writing it.

Detective Chief Inspector Brian Thomas is no stranger to murder and mayhem, having seen the worst of the worst at crime scenes. Even so, his newest case is different. The son of a millionaire investment banker goes missing-and then, two days after his disappearance, a video arrives on the desks of local media that shows the young man's murder in a highly violent, ritualistic fashion. Thomas thinks the killing may be personal and soon discovers there is no shortage of family members with sound motives for wanting the man dead. Soon, however, another video arrives depicting an apparently unconnected murder by the same chilling method. This is no personal vendetta. Instead, Thomas must go head-to-head with a deranged, merciless killer. In this the fourth novel in the Thomas and Grey detective series, Thomas and Detective Inspector Sheila Grey race against time as they seek to stop a murderer before more lives are lost.
