The pen shakes unforgivably in my hand as I think back to the moment that I last saw my wife. I had never wanted to see her in such a state, not even in my darkest nightmares. Fate threw up a new design, and that included her murder at the hands of merciless people.
London had been nothing but a curse on my life. The vermin that littered the streets and the smog that filled the air provided harsh reminders that the city was a disgusting, sinful place; where corruption and murder was rife, and men like me struggled to survive.
What followed my wife's death was an air of bloody carnage and regret as I attempted to seek answers, and try to understand why she was murdered. But sometimes things are best left in the past, as hard as it might be.
I tried so hard to create the idyllic future for us both, but the sad truth was that I failed. I failed as a husband and as a man. My grip on her was always slipping, that had now become so clear.
My name is Dr William Blackmore.
This is my story...

About the Author
Ben was born and raised in Hertfordshire, England in 1986 and remained there until he was 16 when the family moved down to the south of England. He learnt to love books at an early age thanks to the efforts of his Mother and Grandmother. By 11 he was reading novels by one of his favourite authors, Dean Koontz, which came about when his Mother gave him a small collection of novels which included Phantoms, Watchers and his early favourite book, The Door to December. It was through reading these novels that his love for writing would grow. During school, he would spend time writing notes and book ideas but would not fully realise his potential for another 15 years. In 2011 he came across Smashwords, which gave him the opportunity to release his short stories to the world. First came Mouse and Cat, followed by a further 8 stories. In 2016 he wrote and published his first novel on Amazon, sharing his love for horror and the Victorian way of life. From the deep abyss of dark thoughts came a novel of revenge, lost love and regrets.
