by J. McL. Harris

Overview
Sometimes the stories grandparents tell seem just that, stories. After the death of her mother, Joanna Fallon visits an old lady who claims to be her grandmother, Maria. She tells Joanna a detailed story of how she met her grandfather, David, and how they ran a yacht charter business in the south of France in the late 1930s. David disappeared at the beginning of World War II. Now that the war records have been opened, Maria asks Joanna to find out what happened to David. A simple task? When skeptical Joanna sets out to confirm Maria's story she discovers it is true, but not the whole truth. There is a lot more. Unbelievably more. Has Maria cleverly set a trap using Joanna as the bait? What Joanna finds is the untold, horrifying other half of the story.

About the author
John McLeod Harris is a retired Australian Air Force pilot whose hobbies include flying his homebuilt aircraft, sailing and writing stories. He is always surprised by the number of people other authors thank at the end of their books and thinks that is just a way to spread the blame for likely errors. He has no-one to thank for this story, it is all straight out of his imagination, pure fiction.  The people he does want to thank are the publishers, Fontaine Publishing Group, and the professionalism of their staff for getting the story 'out there'.  Anyone who reads the story and has a comment or complaint is invited to contact the author direct.
