FLAMES TO A MOTH VICKI STEVENS & GARY HORWOOD Three friends. Two voices. One terrible secret.
Bryden James is dead. When his body washes up at the edge of a lake, none are more horrified than Ashley McCabe and Campbell Druery. Was his death retribution for a manic vendetta against powermongers, payback for decades of torment, or in reprisal for what happened with their involvement one dreadful night in 1992?
Forced to recall a friendship formed in childhood and set ablaze as adults by longing, manipulation, and betrayal, Ash and Cam realise if they are to survive the future they will need to meet face-to-face. Estranged for so long, will coming together to confront the truth stifle the pain of the past or fan it into a consuming fire?
Told in dual narrative, Flames to a Moth is a gripping coming-of-age thriller that exposes how the power that draws people together can, over time, tear them apart … or worse.
Vicki Stevens reunited several years ago with Gary Horwood, a former school classmate and memoir writer, who she happily discovered shared her passion for telling brave and engaging stories. This led to a collaboration to write Flames to a Moth.
