    Summary

    Walking up the hall, Tom could see the shape of him through the glass—an obscured outline slowly coming into focus. He knew he would know immediately, and part of him wanted to delay the knowing. But a knock must be answered: be it love, death, or mere interruption.

    Summary

    "To be fair, I don’t think it’s dealing with other people’s shit that bothers him, it’s the being paid to give a shit about other people that he finds effeminate. And there’s nothing worse than that is there? What do you do?"

    If for some reason called on to imagine it, Tom would have conjured up something instantly comical, but this is unexpectedly arousing.

    Summary

    Tom’s eyes wandered over his face, taking in his half-open mouth and half-closed eyes. He said, “Tell me what you want”. 

    Because consent is too low a bar; aim for enthusiasm...

    Summary

    In his third year, Dakin quickly learned that being a finalist meant he was suddenly expected to know what to do with the rest of his life. Until then, he'd taken the university experience in his stride, only vaguely aware that each stride had brought him closer to the edge of the precipice he now finds himself staring down. The route hitherto mapped out for him - A-Levels, entrance exams, degree - is nearing uncharted territory, and the way ahead is unclear.

    Summary

    So help me, if I pick him up, there had better be a bloody good reason. He had no idea where he intended to go with threatening God; the Almighty was, he assumed, disinterested at best. But perhaps he was addressing the wrong supernatural being; this was a Devil’s bargain—if he was about to sell his soul, the earthly reward better damn well be worth it.

    Summary

    Someone shouted, “Dakin! Get in the car!”, and sounded the horn, for good measure. He’d been thinking, rain like this only happens in the movies - absurd, immoderate, biblical rain - rain fit to wash away the sins of mankind and here’s an angel blowing a horn. Or not. He didn’t care either way - he’d sell his soul to be out of it. He pulled open the door and jumped in, closing it with the sound of a deadfall trap.

    Summary

    Stuart Dakin is a man who is accustomed to life going smoothly. Attractive, popular, clever and now rich, by his early thirties he is in a successful job with plenty of opportunities for foreign travel, he has a stunning top floor flat in the middle of central London and is happily married to a sweet, funny, gorgeous solicitor in family law. So when, seemingly out of the blue, his wife tells him she wants a divorce, he feels as if he’s suddenly lost a wheel on middle of the motorway, and is now careering out of control towards the crash barrier with no tools whatsoever to help him out of the situation.

    Summary

    Love, friendship and the trials of soul marks are never easy to navigate. At eighteen, a name on your forearm can make the world all the more a painful and confusing place.

    Summary

    Stuart Dakin has never doubted his intelligence - and he'd like the records to show that, thank you very much. He can argue his way out of anything and wipe the floor with his classmates in any debate - but he's never shared their love of the written word.
