Description

Ted volunteered for the mission because, after all, it was just a routine trip to Mars. What could possibly go wrong? In the deepest, darkest reaches of space, one must fill the vacuum, the void, the emptiness. Yet do we humans have the "psychological stuff" for deep space travel? If not, we may end up like Ted.

EXCERPT: …When I'm able to set aside the terror and the realization of what a horrible predicament I face, I have so many questions. Why didn't Space Command abort the trip and stop the ship remotely? Couldn't they see that something was wrong? They must have, as telemetry for remote control was one of their precious safeguards. Did that fail too? We have ourselves a regular comedy of errors, it seems, though I find it not even remotely funny. It could be worse, I suppose; I could be dead….

"Think about it, Ted." I might as well talk to myself since there's nothing else to do. "What do you think is going to happen now?"

"This was a very gripping short story. The ending just blew me away! The length worked well, not too short or too long. Definitely reading more from this author." ~ Tracy G.

What Others Are Saying about FORGIVE ME, ALEX:

~~~

Lane Diamond has succeeded in bringing to the surface the dark and horrifying mind of a psychotic serial killer while at the same time bringing forth the desperate need for humanity and justice for the victims and their families. I highly recommend this for its powerful and gripping story line. You will be held in a spell that will keep you wanting more and find yourself totally drawn in. ~ The Kindle Book Review

Okay, I chose to review this one because there were elements of the story that reminded me of Dexter. I'm a fan of both the show and the book and wanted to see if this story could possibly hold up next to Jeff Lindsey's tale of a serial killer who kills other serial killers. It does! And then some.... ~ Mary Ann Loesch
