Boxed

Author:

Richard Anderson

Synopsis:

Dave Martin is down on his luck: his wife's left him, his farm is a failure, his house is a mess, he's withdrawn from his community and friends, and tragedy has stolen his capacity to care. He passes the time drinking too much and buying cheap tools online, treating the delivered parcels as gifts from people who care about him. And then boxes begin to arrive in the mail: boxes that he didn't order, but ones that everyone around him seems to want desperately. As he investigates, Dave is drawn into a crazy world of red herrings and wrong turns, good guys and bad, false friends and true, violence, lust, fear, revenge, and a lot, lot more. It's not a world he understands, but is it the only one Dave can live in?

The Reconstructionist

Author:

Nick Arvin

Synopsis:

Finishing college, Ellis Barstow drifts back to his hometown and into a strange profession: reconstructing fatal traffic accidents. He seems to take to the work, forming a bond with his boss, John Boggs. Yet Ellis harbours a secret. Haunted by the fatal crash that killed his half-brother Christopher, he is drawn to the reconstructionist's grisly world. Boggs, in his exacting way, would argue that if two cars meeting at an intersection can be called an accident then anything can - where we live, what we do, even who we fall in love with. For Ellis these things are no accident. He harbours a second, more dangerous secret, which will shatter both their lives and lead to a desperate race towards confrontation, reconciliation and survival.
