The Icing Man
Disillusioned corporate exec seeks ‘stress-free’ existence - and becomes a self-employed icer of cakes. Jeremiah Clock finds his tranquillity blitzed when his neighbour turns to him for help.
‘Ticktock, ticktock. What a shock for poor old Clock.’
Pornography, disappearances and substitutions catapult him into a realm of murder, hallucination and sinister manipulation.
A life gone mad. Ticktock... More
My name is Jeremiah Clock. Yes, I know – Tick Tock, Tick Tock. Very funny.
I was a corporate executive until I opted for early retirement. Now I ice cakes. Funnier still?
Well, not to worry. All that’s changed. My neighbour’s wife disappeared recently only to be replaced by a half-dead doppelganger. Oh, and by the way, they were ‘soft porn’ talent scouts – worth a mention, I suppose. On top of all that, I’ve acquired a new apprentice to fret over – don’t want her to get involved. Too dangerous.
Any hope of a peaceful life vanished when a whirlpool of murder, manipulation and madness swallowed me whole.
Still think it’s funny? Not surprisingly, I don’t.
But I’ll tell you straight: I shall not be cowed, intimidated or beaten into submission. If there is passage through this mayhem I will find it, and that’s a promise.
The Icing Man – tranquillity lost.
