First in the Black Viking P.I. Series
‘Untethered is a semi-autobiographical crime noir, exploring themes of identity, isolation and the damaging effects of drink, depression and PTSD.’
90s CRIME NOIR WITH A KILLER SOUNDTRACK
Untethered deals with heavy drinking, depression, PTSD, isolation and struggling writers in search of identity, meaning and purpose to go on, having already crawled stoic through life’s darkness.
‘Untethered’ is largely an auto-biographical piece on identity and alternate paths walked, after facing up to moral junctions in life. It also considers the decisions made based on right and wrong felt at the time and the outcomes of this.
It’s crime noir full of dirty realism.
John’s bored in his witness protection program in Bristol. He’s both an ex SAS soldier and former doorman of the infamous Manchester club, the Hacienda. As he searches for meaning at the bottom of many a glass, madness sets in and cryptic messages start to arrive.
One note comes with a knock on his door and a chance to find a missing girl; to start over again… as a Private Investigator.
His therapist encourages him to put his demons on paper; to write it all out. As John battles with his past, could this writing lead him to find the girl, his future and maybe even love?
