“We should go this way.” Mr. Singh sounded unconcerned, as he led the way into the right-hand passage.
Doreen followed, unwinding the wool as she walked. The walls and ceiling closed in on her, until she couldn’t have walked side by side with Mr. Singh even if she’d wanted to. He had the penknife in his hand, she realised, as the torchlight glinted off its biggest blade.

A SERIES OF ORDINARY ADVENTURES:
A wander down a country pathway, a cruise vacation in the Mediterranean, a school reunion, a sandwich eaten in the park – in the stories of Stevie Carroll, the mundane becomes tantalizingly magical. A footballer’s mistress gets more than just an apartment when her lover tries to keep her in style; a rock-and-roll bass player finds out that second chances aren’t all they’re cracked up to be; something sinister lurks beneath the trappings of a travelling carnival.
