Coming this week to an e-reader near you.
A bomb attack. Chris Deacon wakes from a 28-hour coma to learn that he cannot hear and he cannot speak. A man who finds himself tormented by two phantoms; a military officer and a grotesque, tiny dwarf: Colonel Gun and Egghead.
As his hearing slowly returns, he begins to hear The Voices muttering away unintelligibly in the background. And then, Colonel Gun and Egghead begin to speak to him, showing him visions of what happened to them, how they came to be what they are.
Prophetic dreams show him the deaths of other survivors, hinting that he may be next.
In a desperate effort to restore his sanity and rid himself of their vile influence, he follows a trail to a remote, hidden and decaying garrison house in the wilds of Northumberland, and there he confronts the true horror of The Voices. Not what they are, but what they intend to be.
A man alone, a man unable to communicate, Chris Deacon knows that you cannot escape what is in your head.
Voices by David Shaw is released on Thursday, May 10th by Crooked Cat Books.
