FISH IN A BARREL
“I may not have eyes, but you are the ones who are blind. Death already walks amongst you.”
When Scarlet seeks sanctuary in the home of an old rocker couple after a classmate goes missing, she discovers the town’s most notorious urban legend could actually be history repeating, and that messing with death and magic can lead to losing one’s mind.
The town of Ashwood had been on edge ever since The Othersiders came and caused havoc years before, when out on the desert plains The Strangers appeared as if out of nowhere, seeking sanctuary from a war torn land.
Using rare gifts to barter with, they came in search of a strange carnival in the hope that they might find the man with whom they owe a debt.
But when sinister deals are made and men do things that would forever haunt them, the town falls into a dark slumber, unable to cope when one of their own is found dead and the prophecies of a Blind Oracle become a reality.
But the monster within never sleeps for long.
And now, in a discarded and cursed Carnival, something sinister has surfaced, turning the still grieving town into a playground for the dead.
Fish In A Barrel is a dark urban legend about seeking revenge even after death, and what happens when feuds turn deadly, curses destroy lives, and isolation leads to madness.
