Teaser from 6% on Kindle
The sick feeling I had been living with...the living, breathing fear I had been feeling, every second of every day... it was all gone. Every bit of it. At least temporarily. For those next few minutes, when I did what I did next.
Michael is no ordinary young man. Mute since a childhood tragedy, at age eighteen he discovers that he possesses a skill he would never have expected. Whether it’s a locked door without a key, a padlock with no combination, or even an eight-hundred pound safe . . . he can open them all.
It’s a talent that will make Michael a hot commodity with the wrong people, and whether he likes it or not, push him closer to a life of crime. Until one day, when he finally sees his chance to escape, and decides to risk everything to return home to the only person he ever loved, and to unlock the secret that has kept him silent for so long.
I look forward to your teaser choice. Have a great week.
