The Hooker by Simon Wood

The Hooker by Simon WoodA Reprehensible Acts Story

In this novelette, Mark was content to see out his single days with a bachelor party, but his best man, Lance, wasn’t. He insists in sending Mark off in style…in the company of a hooker. It’s supposed to be the last hoorah of a single man before being condemned to a life of marriage, but that all changes when the hooker scams them. Mark’s world unravels and a dark side he never knew he possessed spills out.

The Reprehensible Acts series features stories without heroes or happy endings in most cases. These stories feature characters that lose their way and may never find their way back. You can’t condone their actions, but perhaps you can have sympathy for their damaged souls. You might find these stories unpalatable, but then again, you’re not meant to. Don’t judge. No one is immune to committing a reprehensible act.

THE HOOKER is available from Amazon and Amazon UK.
