Cold Callers

Length: 70 pages57 minutes


How far will a mother go to protect her infant child?

Marcie Hall is a victim of the recession and now lives in a creepy old house in a run-down area of town. She hates the house, the street outside and her unfriendly neighbours – and she’s very afraid at night. Her greatest joy is her four-month-old baby Nicola. While her husband is away at work, she cares for her beloved child and works from home to add to their meagre income...

A frantic knocking on her front door heralds the arrival of the Cold Callers – and a night of harrowing terror begins for the mother and her baby. Marcie finds the house under siege by creatures than are neither human nor animal... Creatures with horrific intent...

Marcie is outnumbered and her attackers are stronger, faster and vicious. Her greatest weapon is her own maternal instinct – her frantic need to keep Nicola from harm. To have any hope of saving her baby, Marcie will have to overcome her fears and fight with greater courage than she ever realised she possessed.

Can love and desperation defeat savage, malignant evil?
