EXTRICATE is a violent tale of sexual obsession, unfolding on the dark streets of a nowhere town. Peter falls for Judy the instant he lights her cigarette, but she’s his best mate’s girl — and he’s already married. He decides to begin removing obstacles — starting with his wife. How far will he be willing to go? How far does lifelong friendship go when he finally meets the woman of his peculiar dreams?
‘EXTRICATE is a twisty- turny noir tale of dishonor amongst thieves that is skewered with hot lust and cold blooded murder.’ ~ Paul D. Brazill, author of Guns Of Brixton and Gumshoe
‘Crime meets erotica in a fevered novella. Graham Wynd has written a fluid and tight story with vivid characters in situations that are inextricably charged with a sexuality from which you will find it hard to extricate yourself.’ ~ Richard Godwin, author of One Lost Summer, Apostle Rising and Mr Glamour
50 pages long and a fantastic tale of friendship and deceit, interspersed with sex, drink, cards, a loveless marriage, dodgy dealings, but mainly sex as Peter’s obsession and addiction to his best friend’s girl leads him down a dangerous path.
I liked Peter and disliked the harping, nagging hard-drinking wife. I shed no tears over her demise. Pete’s betrayal of Dud and his method of dealing with him, to secure the alluring and passionate Judy turned me.
True to form Peter, continues to think through his nether regions up until the end.
Satisfying characters and a great tale. I look forward to reading more from Graham Wynd and her alter-ego in the future.
A slight down-side my version of this was for Kindle whereas the paperback edition includes extra material. Nevermind – an enjoyable hour’s reading.
