The Second Death, the sixth installment in BQB’s Twisted Shorts, is now available on Amazon.
“They count as quite forgot;
They are as men who have existed not;
Theirs is a loss past loss of fitful breath;
It is the second death.”
- Thomas Hardy, “The To-be Forgotten”
A social media starlet’s botched plastic surgery. A bizarre dance routine no one wants to see. A fiery blaze that puts a box full of adorable kitties at risk. A bank robbery gone haywire. A mafia hitman turned state’s evidence. A plot against the President of the United States while the fate of a nuclear arms reduction treaty hangs in the balance.
Determined to obtain his fifteen-minutes of fame at any cost, attention seeking wacko Gary Bryson has mapped out a series of strange schemes, each one more twisted than the next, all designed to attract the mass media coverage that he so desperately craves.
It all adds up to the day from hell for FBI agents Rick Nash and Ramona Cruz. Will they be able to force Bryson to take a bow before the final curtain call?
Inspired by Thomas Hardy’s classic poem, “The To-be Forgotten,” “The Second Death” is the sixth and final installment of the first volume of BQB’s Twisted Shorts. Do you like “The Twilight Zone?” Do you like “The Outer Limits?” Do you like “Black Mirror?” Well, BQB doesn’t have the budget to make shows as awesome as those, but his self-published journey toward creating an episodic anthology has begun.
