Get The Dark, Critically Acclaimed Indie Novel Exit. FREE
The Doors May Be Closed But Your Imagination Is Not
An impromptu, mid-afternoon confession stirs up distant memories of the period of isolation Briar spent trapped in her home; suffering from agoraphobia.
Six years on, she’s free, but ripples of the year's isolation still lap at the edges of her life, and that of those in her orbit; Melodie, a pretty valley girl who Briar desires to be, Justine, her oldest friend, who has her own dark secret, and Dermot, who thinks he's the reincarnation of Robin Hood.
Duel periods of Briar’s life intertwine… crime and ultimately murder beckon… the last survivor of humanity sifts the remnants of civilization… and reverberations echo down through the years, leading Briar closer to answering the final question: “Is it what I always feared—am I losing my mind?”
Sophisticated suspense that keeps its secrets until the black dead end.
The book is very well written--and very dark. There are violent scenes, uncomfortable subjects--and not much room for happy endings

I'm definitely looking forward to more of Shane's future works. Thanks for a truly engrossing story!
The (male) author does an incredible job of getting inside the minds of his female characters. He also has a wonderful poetic way with words, e.g., "The low red moon glows hypnotically, a burning fire in the quiet blackness."
I have a Briar in my life and although this is a work of fiction, it has helped me to understand that world in a tremendous way. Filer does a great job at painting a vivid and compelling picture of what people with these struggles go through daily.
No one wants to be a hero; everyone wants to be a victim. To seem strong may only be concealing denial, but to be vulnerable is to be invincible.
