Read an Excerpt:
The crayon moved down the page. Red, livid, ready. Spread on the table, splayed like a sacrifice, was the Classifieds section of the New Zealand Herald. He could’ve found the information faster online, but the risk of leaving an electronic trail made him turn to the old fashioned, the tactile, the untraceable.
The scent of fake wax from the crayon mingled with the fresh ink of the newspaper. He paged to the adverts in the Adult Entertainment column.
Bored? Lonely? Looking for a good time?
No, that wasn’t it.
Fat? So what?
He raised his eyebrows, continued his search. Suddenly, the red crayon halted.
A gentle massage using modern or ancient Eastern techniques.
Leaves you invigorated and stress-free. For appointments, phone...
Unconventional. Not into rules. Yes, this one had potential. The crayon swooped, trailed a jagged red oval around the ad.
“Honey? Are you coming to bed?”
The voice wafted down the stairwell. He closed the newspaper, careful to line up its edges and smooth out its spine.

He read the advert again. His blood raced. The addiction simmered inside him. Excited. Expectant.
About the Author:
My heritage is inter-continental. I was born and raised in Poland. When I was twelve, my family and I emigrated to South Africa. Your teenage years are usually your formative years, so it’s no surprise I consider South Africa my second homeland. For the past twenty years, I’ve lived in New Zealand, and people ‘back home’ tell me I’ve become a real Kiwi.
Crime fiction is my passion. My childhood hero was, predictably, Hercule Poirot. I've changed my mind several times since, and for a time I was totally into Harlan Coben's super-rich super-able Win (Windsor Horne Lockwood), but my current favourite is Benedict Timothy Carlton Cumberbatch… I mean, Sherlock Holmes.
