Deadly Beasts -removing 01.03.15
Mary Arnold woke in hospital under police protection with little recollection of the events that led to her being there. She is protected by a department of the police that she has never heard of and if that wasn't troubling enough, the detective handling her case walks into her hospital room and tells her that her attacker wasn't human. What would you say to him if he told you that he was putting you into protection and the circumstances were the strangest you had ever heard? Would you willingly go into the protection of one mythical creature to survive a secondary attack from another mythical creature?
Mary has little choice, if she wants to live, she has to do what the detective tells her. She has to walk into the protection of a scary man in a creepy house until the police find her attacker. Behind the locked doors and the forbidden areas of the house, Mary settles into an uncomfortable existence. Her host William Lancaster, is a dark and cold man, living with the despair of lost love. The arrival of Mary into his house awakens the memories of his past and the pain of losing his beloved wife. Mary's survival depends on William dispelling his morose thoughts and hatred of the world. Can she depend on a man that is so absorbed in his own misery that he can not see the danger that looms or will she end up as another statistic of the secret government department?
