Matt is British, but living in South Australia with his wife and young daughter.
In the idyllic English Lake District, an enthusiastic, but inexperienced police constable finds himself stationed with an oddball assortment of colleagues under the dubious command of Ellroy ‘Hellboy’ Pearce.
Mid week during the winter season is usually dull, apart from pestering the occasional speeding motorist or scaring each other with ghost stories, but as an unnatural mist settles over the lake, strange events begin to unfold.
The tranquil surface of the water is deceptive…there’s something out there, something big, hungry and possibly tentacled. The time has come to man up, find a weapon…and avoid becoming an appetizer.
A fast-paced 20,000 word novella.
