When you read this, you loose yourself in the story. As with all great writers, you are able to be in the story, become part of the scene. I love reading a story and being not able to put it down. Definitely need to read more from Michael Vain!

This short novella is worth the read ,a dark fast paced story which develops and reveals the characters like a textual painting . There are similarities of style to classic short story/novella writers such as Ray Bradbury,Oscar Wilde etc, and the plot uses the vehicle of a musical instrument in the hands of a mystery man to reveal the inner intentions of 2 robbers to themselves and the reader (who is like a 4th witness to the drama). Just as it seemed there was hope, the ancient reality too many have denied in a post modern world of cyber-analgesia slams down like a ...well,will let you read it yourself . This novella will definitely qualify as food for thought .
