Kevin Harken returns to his old childhood home of Mythford and faces the ghosts of his past and the formalities of his brother's funeral. For him, this will close a chapter of pain and suffering.

And after the police depart, a cat called Washington arrives looking for Kevin's deceased brother and events begin to spiral beyond control.

Armed with clues, and questions, and suppositions Kevin, Ellie, and Washington embark on a course of investigation with all three believing they seek is linked to the others' search. They don't get far before they find a whole world of trouble.

About Malek Montag


I have been writing on and off for the past thirty years, developing and perfecting my craft and always striving to be better than my best by working through self-help books and learning from other authors skills and tips to take my work forward.


Recently, I have taken the self-publication route with this the first NOVELLA following on from the publication of two collections of erotic-romance short stories. You’ll find links these above. Up-coming titles to look out for are Marianne and Mz Exquizite, other novellas that take a dark twist amid the hot sheets.


I also write in the horror, sci-fi, and fantasy genres. So, look out for The American (Horror); Five Dark Run (Sci-Fi); Doctor Swain’s Rainbow of Remedies (Fantasy), all currently works in progress. 


Or check out my two Channillo series, Orlova the Assassin and Trazz III. Both are in the sci-fi genre.


I live alone with my imagination and Money Tree in a not so spacious one-bunk Hilton, and spend my time working, writing, reading, and looking after my bestest pal in all the world, my son The Dude.
