The chauffeur stood still for a moment, then moved his broad hand up towards the button on his tight uniform jacket. His voice was low and hypnotic. Behind an overgrown garden by the sea, a mysterious crumbling mansion harbours a tantalising secret.

Difficult Horse by Sarah Fisher Difficult Horse, Paperback (October 2012)
