Vino’s Progress [8]

What would you do if you knew there were deranged men with shocking habits near the ones you love willing to harm them for their own pleasure and personal gain?

The night of the snow storm changes everything for Vino Ventele, a 37-year-old lawyer from West Boggins.

One moment, he is discussing mountain climbing with his energetic and charismatic bestfriend, Josh Waye; the next, watching with horror as deranged men begin terrifying people within his community.

He knows these men came from Oxford but he can’t prove it – at least not without some detective work.

The stable, brave man knows that his carefree life is over. He acquires some help from a brash investigative journalist Samantha Stirs and is gradually reborn as the hero who will save his community and even more so the world from these deranged men.

However, when Josh calls, begging him to stop his intensifying obsessions’ concerning his research into the business dealings of these deranged men, Vino is forced to decide what is more important: stopping the deranged men that terrify people without criminal prosecution, or preserving his own reputation and relationship with his best friend?
