RED ISLAND

RED ISLAND BY MARTIN HANLEY

Chapter One : The Charity of Thieves  (excerpt)

The world was stolen right from under our noses and now the thieves sit mocking us with a glimpse of what might have been. And as any good thief will tell you, the best way to steal something is by slight of hand. First they entertained us, then they teased our senses; we’re such a great audience after all. And they’d studied us for they knew we’re always searching, searching for another yellow brick road. You see there’s a very simple reason why we were naked when paradise was lost; we’d already fallen for the charity of thieves. 

Dedication: To all those innocents who have, who presently are and, who will lose their lives in other people’s wars.
