The Visitor


In the distance a man watches her

Perfect she stands on the beach

Wavelets lapping at her feet

He desires her, he will charm her

She will come with him like others

Where are those others now?

She goes with him, travelling to distant places

They walk all alone in a land of bright sunlight

She sees not the shadows hiding in the dark

Awful secrets emerge - she knows she must escape.

But she is trapped with him in the middle of nowhere.

Her hands and feet are tied. She is a captive.

He is taking her to a place of huge crocodiles.

She fears she will vanish inside them forever!

How could it have come to this?

Reader Review – From Idyll to Nightmare

Highly recommend. Storyline begs to be read

And characters you’ll never forget. Wonderful

Australian backdrop is the icing on the cake
