Red Written
by P. T. Mayes

"Not quite the apocalypse, but something different."

On the morning of the 9th of July, Michael Wells wakes, looks at his reflection in the mirror and make a disturbing discovery. All his sins have been written across his face and body. The words are not tattoos; they are indelible stains, deep and red, written in a strange language. Michael has literally become a walking encyclopaedia of his deepest, darkest desires.

And he is not alone. The whole world has been touched by the same curse.

But Michael is unlucky: he has been given extra. There is a big MURDER on his chest, directly over his heart, but he has never murdered anyone in his life. Surely, there must be some mistake?

Meanwhile, not far away, a young woman named Eva Loh discovers that she too has been touched by the strange marks, but being a photographer she decides to document the ensuing chaos as society crumbles around her. She will record every last atrocity for posterity, even if it kills her.

Both Michael and Eva must fight for survival as they attempt to understand the strange forces that have torn their lives – and the life of every living person on the planet -- apart. Meanwhile new societies and religions, both good and evil, grow out of the ruins of the old world, determined to grab as much power for themselves as they can. What Michael and Eve don’t realise is that they both have important roles to play in this new and dangerous world. Their destinies await them.

And then there’s the sinless man, and he's biding his time, watching.

Red Written is dark urban fantasy/adventure set in contemporary Britain. It is aimed at MATURE readers and contains adult language and themes that are unsuitable for children.

It’s been seven years since Melanie Rhodes was brutally attacked by a deranged serial killer. Now, sheriff of the sleepy little village of Spring Haven, Michigan, things are good. The worst crimes she has to deal with are kids partying on vacant property and the occasional domestic dispute.

Even when a woman’s body is found in the woods, she thinks she has a straight forward murder case on her hands.
