On behalf of Zoe at https://zooloosbookdiary.co.uk/zooloos-blog-tours and question Mark press, I am excited and honoured today to be hosting an extract from Comatose bby Jane Badrock. This book sounds amazing and I’m hoping you’ll agree.
COMATOSE…and her nightmare is just beginning.
Two car crashes, one location, one survivor.
Newly promoted DS Karen Thorpe is determined to prove these are no accidents. But the only witness is in a coma.
Now there’s a rapist on the loose.
Karen’s in the fight of her life… and her boss isn’t on her side.
‘We’ll have to cut her out,’ he said. The fireman’s face, calm and determined reflected the flashing blue lights of the arriving ambulance.
He shouted ‘Over here. LIGHTS.’ Then he turned to speak to the woman through what was left of the window. ‘Listen, love, we’re going to have to cut the car open.’ There was no response.
Moments later light flooded the scene, and the mangled yellow wreckage was revealed. The woman, her serene and unblemished face framed in golden hair, looked a picture of tranquillity amidst the frenzied activity.
‘We’re going to stabilise the car first,’ the fireman said. Then we have to get the metal cutters. You’ll hear a noise, it’s a horrible screeching but it won’t last long.’ Still no response. ‘You’ll be fine, love. I promise. We’ll get you out.’
Awake, the woman would have howled at the damage to her car and lamented the irredeemably ripped handmade blue silk suit. Unconscious, she put up no resistance to the frantic hands exploring her body for signs of injury.
Author Bio – Jane Badrock
Jane writes novels, short stories and poems, usually with a good dose of humour in them. She’s probably owes it all to her late grandmother who, she’s just found out, also wrote short stories and poems. She tends to get an idea and then run with it whether it be a 100 word short story or an 80 thousand word novel. It all depends on the voices in her head at the time…
