Smoke & Mirrors: and other stories

You will find here a collection of 12 stories suitable for anybody who enjoys the age-old challenge of good versus evil. I believe the tales will have a wide appeal because I've used a variety of genre and circumstances.



One of these stories is a competition winner and two of them appear in other anthologies. This collection is an experiment so dependent on feedback, I may produce another set of 12.









1.  Smoke & Mirrors - internal conflict within covert operations


2.  Simply Irresistible – public erotica on a train


3.  Mary had a little gun … – kidnapping, extortion and summary justice


4.  A Killer in the Mist – an accidental death leads to a bizarre ending


5.  The Survivor – modern shipwreck


6.  Photographic Memory – a UN soldier is stranded in a ‘hot’ environment


7.  Down to Earth – an alien is sentenced to serve his time on Earth


8.  Pawnee Express – a Wild West courier makes some strange friendships


9.  Debt of Honour – a marooned sailor seeks vengeance


10. Assassins – when do you draw the line?


11. Duty Bound? – a pilot ejects in enemy territory


12. Guardian Angels – be careful who you kidnap
