A Shattered MemoryAlan Halsey
The typically green Appalachian foliage is ablaze in shades of red, orange, and yellow. The air carries the familiar chill of autumn and life is continuing as usual for Carolyn Crest, an English major at Centre University. One morning Carolyn receives an odd call from a friend that will send her spiraling into an abysmal pit from which there is no return.
Samantha Hunt is certain that something happened to her boyfriend, Derrick, and whatever happened to him is drawing near to her. Someone is following her.
Carolyn is sure that Samantha is having an “episode,” but agrees to venture with Sam into her imagination, mostly to prove the point. What Carolyn finds is not imaginary, but more real than the worst possible nightmare.
Michael is suffering from what seems to be a severe case of amnesia, but something about his life doesn’t seem right. He remembers nothing of his past other than what is necessary for daily life. He remembers how to tie his shoes and his name; simple things like that. He comes to learn that he is in a very strange place with a very strange job; strange things that will only grow more and more unbelievable.
Neither Carolyn nor Samantha will ever know Michael or the role he plays in their existence. Never will they know it, but Michael holds their fate in his hands.
Leyland Hammond runs a small group of mercenaries tasked with Carolyn’s aid. Leyland, though weathered and empty, falls for the green eyed girl. When Carolyn is taken, Leyland is determined to return her safely. Little does he know that he can’t do it without Michael’s help...
