Excerpt

DOPPELGANGER
CHAPTER 1

Arthur Saildon was lolling against the framework of the door coughing when Pete, the bodyguard come bouncer, opened the door. When he saw who it was he sneered, ‘Oh, it's you.’
He roughly yanked Arthur in by his arm and peered around outside to make sure he hadn't been followed, ‘Get in here, quick.’
