Genre: Short Story/Thriller
“Hannah and Rea, on holiday in Tangiers are disturbed to discover that two sinister looking characters are following them. Then they meet the mysterious Toby who is himself following the stalkers. He wants to know why the men are interested in the girls. But the girls have no idea. They are not too worried, since they are moving on to Chefchouen. He says he will take them himself, secretly.
But who is Toby? What does he do? Is he a policeman? A spy? A treasure hunter?
All seems well until one of the girls disappears.”
A native of the UK, Jenny Twist is the author of several books and short stories. She lives with her husband in Spain.
Two young ladies, Hannah and Rea, are on a vacation in Tangiers. They’re on a shopping trip at the local bazaar, a few guys being chased by the police run through, and they head back to the hotel in search of a gin and tonic. Little do they realize that inconsequential shopping trip has set them up for more than they bargained for. What that was is a mystery, to the reader and to Hannah and Rea. The story is short, intense, and just like Hannah and Rea, I spent the whole time trying to figure out what the heck was going on and why. I guess that’s why it is called a mystery.
No significant issues.
