The Girl On The Bridge is the newest book from Garth Owen. It’s the first in the Adam and the Ghosts series and also part one of a two part introduction to Adam, his main ghosts and some of the supporting cast. Part two- The Girl In The Wall- is coming soon.
When Adam takes a picture of a girl who isn’t there it’s only the start of a strange and exciting journey.
The sky was still and blue and a heat haze distorted the tarmac, but Adam had just walked into ice cold air. He had come to a stunned halt then taken a swift step back before the chill froze his joints. Now the hot, heavy air he had escaped to raised a quick sweat and made it hard to breathe.
Adam reached out to touch the shaft of frigid air. Whatever wasn’t there resisted. His fingers tingled with freezer burn, but it only went print deep. He prodded, and imagined he felt a little give, like material, or even skin. The ends of his fingers were going numb from the cold, or whatever he was pressing was warming to his touch. He shoved the resisting air until he felt it move, and imagined he heard the scuffling of something being pushed along the ground.
The tips of Adam’s fingers stung now. He stared at them, as if that would give him an answer, then something stroked his forearm.
It wasn’t as cold as the invisible obstruction had been, but it still felt wrong. It was like being caressed by an insistent and very localised wind. The wind asked, very quietly, “Can you see me?” Then it grasped his right wrist. It was a light hold, and not as cold as previously. As what felt like two dainty hands held him they warmed up to almost skin temperature.
Adam reached down with his left hand and drew his phone from his jeans pocket. With barely a glance at it and practised moves he opened the camera, held the phone in front of him and took a picture.
Part 1 of a two part introduction to the world of Adam and the ghosts and creatures he encounters. Contains explicit content, recommended for adults.
