The Circus Rider

Bob Thompson

Published by Cyberpress

2 Male 4 Female

Hounded by the press, when Sissi arrives in Geneva she has already been in mourning for ten years

Convinced that her son had been murdered by Prussian agents, she has been trying to contact him in the spirit world

Out walking, she comes across a handsome vagrant who bears him a passing resemblance

Convinced that this is her son returned to her, she takes him under her wing and, braving the reporters, takes him into her hotel

Deciding to face down the media, she gives an interview to an American journalist staying at the hotel but this merely serves to catalogue her failing grasp on reality

And is the vagrant what he seems?

Revelations will have fatal consequences
