Hired Hands: Parts I and II


What would you do if you came home one day and discovered your parents had disappeared? Vanished. Who would you tell? Mandy's parents are missing, but she can't tell anyone. Not a soul.

After 20 years in prison for a crime she swears she did not commit, Mandy Jacobs has finally walked free - and into a nightmare. The intoxicating scent of freedom is shattered in the blink of an eye when she arrives home to an empty house; a home seemingly untouched for two decades, except for one room. Her room.

In a tale of two halves, novella Hired Hands is told from different perspectives. Because there are always two sides to every story, it delves into the minds of both the innocent and the depraved.

Part I - Mandy
Mandy was just a teenager when she climbed over her boyfriend's bloodied, lifeless body and ran. Running was a mistake - a regret that stalked every day of the two decades she sat staring at peeling paint in a lonely prison cell.

When freedom finally calls, it comes at a terrible price. What promised to be a happy homecoming is shot down by a sickening mystery only she can solve.

Part II - Danielle
The day the police finally come isn’t the end of Danielle's nightmare... It is just the beginning. 

The timid shadow of her overbearing husband, she is caught up in a tangled web of murder and lies. And there is no way out. What police find at the bottom of the garden turns the spotlight full circle. Instead of looking at her husband, they are now shifting the focus of their inquiry - to her. 

Every aspect of Danielle’s tortured life is put under the microscope by police investigating the disappearance of an elderly couple. Nobody seems to care that Danielle has been a missing person herself since she was eight years old. 

A shocking portrayal of lies, murder and more lies. Who will you believe?

A brand new psychological thriller that exposes what can happen when the eyes of the law are looking the other way.
