Cover for 'In the Shadows'

A collection of Short Stories by action author Basil Sands.

These stories will get your heart racing in thirty minutes or less as you plummet to the depths of human emotion and the desire to protect what is dearest when all hell breaks loose and there is no one there to do anything about it but an Average Joe...or an almost Average Joe. Think of each episode as something like the Twilight Zone, with guns, knives, and whatever the hero can find to defend themselves and their families from the bad guys. These are Basil's original action novels taken down to single episode bite size chunks that'll get your blood pressure up on the commute to the office, or while on the treadmill at the gym.

From a former Navy Seal, to a dad trying to make things right for his son, to a bunch of twenty something adventurers high on an Alaskan mountain you'll get the hardcore action you crave. Twice a month, delivered right to your MP3 player.

You want action? You want pulse pounding excitement? You want to see the bad guys get their due?

Here it is in a way that only a guy named Basil can do.

So make sure to put your tray table in the upright and locked position, and fasten your seat belt... it's going to be a wild ride.

I just finished listening to "The Storyman". I loved it. I'm excited that we got to catch an early glimpse of Kharzai. Hopefully he'll make appearances in future stories. He's a fun character. The rest of the stories in this book were great as well. I can't for the next ...
Great stories, a bit different than your other stuff, ghosts and goblins and other creepies made for an interesting listen.
