A young woman called Petra, alone after her father’s death, wanders the world in search of a mythical place known only as Haven. But Haven has lost its way. Their walls are closed to outsiders. Tension brews and Petra finds herself thrust into the conflict. Is Haven truly a safe place, or is it merely an illusion? Will compassion, love, and a sense of community win over greed, envy, and fear?
Temptation tugs at souls and ambition turns men into heartless creatures. Sometimes even the most noble intentions can lead to dark and grim endings. Even when a man has the gift of all the time in the world he will lose all that he holds dear. Even when people have the benefit of learning from history the past will repeat itself. In this collection of short stories such decisions are made, and the folly of humanity is exposed.
The only constant is destruction.
Life must always result in death.
(`Las Vega Clu’ had gained its name among residents from the remnants of the only sign left in the city, the official name was Freedom City`)
Looking at the smashed up remnants It was not hard to imagine the once grandeur of Las Vega Clu before the devastation, before the humans were left scurrying round like rats, before Darwin’s theory became a reality.
He dresses in rags to hide his grotesque features and his voice is a rasping whisper. Like others he seeks Haven for refuge and a new beginning, but he cannot leave behind everything he wishes.
What`s more, people of Las Vega Clu are not happy to see him leave.
He hopes to find salvation in Haven, but will he end up bringing destruction to this hallowed place?
There’s only chaos, ill fortunate, and a bleak end to this tormented ride we call life.

There are no more happy endings.
In the next bed to me was an elderly gentleman who was suffering from a form of dementia (and Covid). He talked and shouted incessantly which was obviously an irritation as I too was unwell; however, I started to listen to his rants and cries for help and took notes.It soon became obvious to me that he was reliving his childhood and adulthood in his mind and struggling with his reality.
This book is a fictionalised expansion of the notes I took while in hospital next to the poor man.
