Burn by John Muggleton

In this psychological thriller, Robert, Samira and David are awaiting the arrival of a recently departed friend’s daughter, Eve. Although insure of the reason for her request to meet, they are prepared to welcome her with warm and open arms.  They all have history. Eve’s father, Paul, was a famous horror writer, as was Robert’s wife who went missing about six years ago, vanishing without a trace. Much to everyone’s concern, the mysterious Eve seems to know a lot about Tara’s disappearance and her comments and questions cause great unease. Just as Robert, Samira and David realize there is something undeniably eerie about Eve, she insists on telling a ghost story. A story filled with secrets of Robert’s past.
