Imagine that you self-published your own mystery drama online, and the plot turned out to be a lot closer to the truth than you imagined. In 'Alternative Outcome', downbeat journalist Mike Stanhope does just that, and finds himself caught up in a sequence of unsettling events that threaten to become as dramatic as those in his book. Embarking on a search for a girl he knew long ago - someone whose memory he hijacked for his story - he faces a succession of surprises, reverses and revelations as fact and fiction start to intertwine. It’s a pacey and beguiling mix of genres - mystery drama, thriller and romance - and it’s also a gently ironic take on the trials of self-publishing. Read it, and you’ll get a flavour of the complex process it takes to get books like this into your hands in the first place. You’ll also warm to Mike as he struggles to get his life back on track.
