Waiting for minimum critic reviews


A lodger’s dark past comes back to haunt him

Nothing remarkable about Joe Brown. He is of average height, and he wears average clothes. His average looks are hidden behind a beard. But Joe Brown has a secret, and a past, that he wants to forget.

He might have managed it too. He might have moved on to a new life, if he hadn’t answered an ad for a room to rent. His chances would have been good if the beautiful Julia Ryan hadn’t taken him. But she became his landlord, and in no time Joe Brown’s past, and his secret, catch up with him.

This time there will be no forgetting.

Title in the successful Open Door series, originally designed to help adult literacy in Ireland. Original stories from best-selling authors and important new voices, never published in the States before now.
