Having survived several life or death situations, British writer Riven Peake (known as Peaky) is only too aware of the potential horrors of the real world, and also perhaps uniquely qualified to write about them.

The Folie à Deux
What would you do to survive..?
Imagine waking to find yourself bound, held hostage, and transported on a terrifying journey. As you struggle to make sense of your desperate situation, you soon realise there is something far more than mere sexual motivation to your captor’s hidden agenda.
