I have just started a new book The Seven Visitations of Sydney Burgess by Andy Marino so I thought I would share two teasers from it today...

Look at me now, sad and scared and sunk deep in regret as my between-state disperses and my head begins to pound. The single bright spot, glowing white-hot to counterbalance the cold know of despair isn't the fact that despite everything that has happened, I'm home now, and Danny's safe. It's the fact that I know there is cocaine in the watch pocket of my jeans. A sparkling untouched half a gram, give or take, biding its time, waiting for me. I disgust myself. I'm f*cking nuts. I hate it. I love it. 


Every heartbeat hammers home a vicious fantasy: grab the gun and blow his brains out of the back of his head, kick him in the balls until his junk turns to mush, stomp his jaw into the floor, jab out his eyes-and at the same time I'm rooted to the floor while Danny accuses me in his infants wail of being everything I already know I am.

OK...well...since I am only on page 17 those were all new to me as well, looks like I am in for...who knows what LOL...

Sydney's spent years burying her past and building a better life for herself and her eleven-year old son. A respectable marketing job, a house with reclaimed and sustainable furniture, and a boyfriend who loves her son and accepts her, flaws and all. But when she opens her front door, and a masked intruder knocks her briefly unconscious, everything begins to unravel. 

She wakes in the hospital and tells a harrowing story of escape. Of dashing out a broken window. Of running into her neighbors' yard and calling the police. What the cops tell her is that she can no longer trust her memories. Because they say that not only is the intruder lying dead in her guest room, but he's been murdered in a way that seems intimately personal. 

When she returns home, Sydney can't shake the deep darkness that hides in every corner. There's an unnatural whisper in her ear, urging her back to old addictions. And as her memories slowly return, she begins to fear that her new life was never built on solid ground-and that the secrets buried beneath will change everything.
