SEETHINGS (Synopsis) – Novel
NEO-Noir Fiction AT IT’S BEST!
(Relating Genres) #Hardboiled #Psychologicalthriller #Erotica
Take a trip to the darkest side of fiction as we discover the inner Beast inside all of us. All that’s needed to awaken our primal animal is emotional confinement and the perfect storm.
Food, water, shelter, sex, self-actualization, sense-of-belonging.
Remove any one of the first three and expect death soon afterwards.
Remove one of the others to witness psychological cohesiveness loosen its grip on reality.
Here is where sane minds will create one dissociation after another until one dangerous situation exists exactly where and when it shouldn’t.
What’s real? When’s a lie run deep enough to become a plausible truth?
Mitchell’s a cameraman who wants to capture the greatest night-lightning photo of all but something else is in the forest with him. There was a shadow among the trees, perhaps two of them.
It was hard to see because the lightning lasted less than a second.
Was that a murder he witnessed?
He saw the shape of a woman. She was holding her arm in the air, trying to scream but thunder blanketed the sound. There was a man too. He was on top, holding her throat, pushing her to the ground. At least that’s what it looked like.
Was it a murder at all? It could’ve been sex. Yes, sex.
It was a strange kink. Yes, that makes better sense. They’d been going at it before he’d arrived with his camera and tripod. He’d simply caught them in the act at the height of the storm.
Folks do peculiar things to keep their spark alive.
But where did they go? Another flash of light that followed showed nothing.
Passion like that doesn’t turn off that easily, yet they managed to disappear between bolts of lightning. It’s not possible to be there one second and gone the next.
Perhaps they were never there to begin with.
It was just a strange arrangement of light moving between the tree trunks and grasses. No harm was done. None of it was real.
On this side of reality they were nothing more than fleeting shadows. In another place and time, those shadows have faces real enough to touch. They also have real eyes and mouths that let out real screams.
Those shadows always leave a body behind.
In a storm enraged city, a vile creature grows, hunting innocent victims on the nights of great thunderstorms.
Hi. I’m Michael Forman, author of SEETHINGS (neo #noirfiction). Thanks for staying on.
I’m excited to have you here. I’ve had a great time bringing MY STORY into the light.
SEETHINGS was at the root of my goal to bring human’s Inner-Beast to the surface of waking-consciousness through love, sex and the rain.
SEETHINGS is deeply confronting. It’s also challenging and has an ending you’ll never see coming. You will be shocked.
It’s is available in Paperback and eBook versions. You’re only seconds away from reading SEETHINGS in all it’s diabolical glory!
