    Summary

    “I was followed,” she says. “Not a very pleasant experience, but as it happened, there was nothing to worry about.” She meets his eyes, waiting to see if he’ll flinch. Not physically, she doesn’t expect that, but perhaps she’ll see that telltale flicker of his eyes again, the momentary unsteadiness that betrays his lie. Or, better still, perhaps he’ll realise his misstep and give her the truth, as she’s so often had to do since beginning a life with him. But there’s nothing. Just that careful blankness that hides so much, even from her.

    Summary

    NYPD Detective Charlie Maine is working a case concerning an evasive man. When Charlie and his team crack down on the suspect, Philip Lockard, they find him dead by suicide, with a threatening invitation to a remote island in the Pocono Mountains, from a "U.N. Owen"

    Charlie then is tasked with going undercover as Lockard to find out how Mr. Owen knows about him. He arrives on the isolated island in the middle of a large lake with nine other individuals; one of them he's known since High School.

    The invitation turns out to be a trap, as the guests are left stranded on the island, and accusations are declared against all of them; accusations of murder committed out of the law's reach.

    And then, one by one, the guests are murdered. And now Charlie has to find out who the unknown murderer is, even if he has to suspect his high-school crush.

    This is a modern retelling of Agatha Christie's worldwide phenomenon "And Then There Were None." The crimes have been altered to fit the social and political issues of today.

    Disclaimer: I take no sides in politics or beliefs. This story showcases guilt in all. Please read with an open mind.

    Summary

    She glances left and right, sweeping her gaze across pavement and road both. The man is there still. Not as close to her as before. He’s paused a few dozen yards before the crossing, far enough away to avoid suspicion, but close enough for Vera to be certain it’s the same man. She crosses the street, walks another block, and then stops again at another crossing. He’s still behind her, nonchalantly pausing to light another cigarette. It’s definitely the same man, and he’s definitely following her.

    Summary

    It’s odd, the war. Since coming to the United States, it’s been barely even on the periphery of her life.

    And in any case, nothing’s really happened for so long. There have been troop movements lately, battles and losses reported in the papers, but nothing big. Nothing to cause people to congregate around a newspaper the way they are now.

    Summary

    “So? What did the doctor say?”

    “He’s quite satisfied with my progress.” She watches as he removes waistcoat, tie and shirt, revealing his torso to her. The lean muscles, the familiar scars, the dark hair that trails down below the waistband of his trousers. “They want me to have another check-up in a month,” she adds, “but it’s just a precaution. I’m fit and well again, as far as they’re concerned.”

    “Good.”

    He still hasn’t grasped the implications. “I mean,” Vera says, impatience colouring her voice, “that I’m cleared for ordinary activities.” She raises an eyebrow. He looks at her for a long moment, brows drawn together in confusion, and then, at last, awareness dawns. His eyes sharpen. His mouth begins to curve into a smirk. He has understood. He knows precisely what she means.

    Summary

    Everything happened almost by accident ... it happened and we were not the cause ... we just accepted the consequences, agreeing with them ... This is not forever and we both know it ... and the more tightly our almost random ties that keep us together, not letting us get lost of the way.

    Все вышло почти случайно… так получилось и не мы были тому причиной… мы просто приняли последствия, согласившись с ними… Это – не навсегда и мы оба это знаем… и тем крепче наши почти случайные узы, что держат нас вместе, не давая затеряться в пути.

    Summary

    “It hurts,” she snaps. “Stop it!”

    “For God’s sake, Vera.” He drops the comb, and it lands in the water with barely a splash. “I’m doing the best I can,” he tells her. His voice is as sharp as hers, all raw edges and impatience, and on any other occasion she would appreciate that he’s working up a fine temper of his own. But now, though she can recognise it, she doesn’t care. She’s too frustrated, too wound up by her body’s frailties, to care that she might be poking a tiger. “Do you want me to do this, or not?”

    “Not if you can’t do it without hurting me,” she spits out. “As if I’m not sore enough already!”

    Summary

    Blore didn't consider himself very good company. Quite the opposite in fact. Still, he seriously considered it.

    "Given the circumstances..." Blore echoed, "I'd be quite grateful."

    Armstrong gave him the closest thing he had seen to a smile in nearly a month, strained and tight around the edges but still well intentioned. "It's settled then."

    Summary

    An alternate ending to ATTWN. It follows the BBC series and takes place a little after Vera shoots Phillip. I had to change a few things in order for the story to work but I'm sure you can catch on. I hope you enjoy. I really love these two and I hope I do them justice!

    Summary

    She has to find a lie. The awareness of that drifts through her mind, between sharp twists and jabs of pain. She needs to find a story to tell. If she survives this, if she has not lost too much blood, if Philip comes back and finds her…oh God, she thinks, if Philip finds her like this, there’s no telling how he’ll react. She needs a lie, but it’s hard to think, hard to concentrate.

    Summary

    Sometimes she wants to cry out: “Look at me! I am Vera Claythorne Hamilton and I fucking earned my money. I killed a boy!”
    Sometimes she wonders if she would feel more regret if Hugo had not married her, if he had suspected her in any way. She does not think so, but there is no way of knowing now. Well, there is one way, but she would rather not tell Hugo.
    Sometimes she wishes she could tell him. Just to have him look at her as something else than the sweet woman he had married. She does not, well aware that her husband is too kind to ever condone what she did for him.
