Guile, by Geoffrey Neil

– Work in progress – 

What You Don’t Know Will Hurt You.

Ian Shaw is trapped in the clutch of addiction. His life is spiraling out of control. His parents and loved ones intervene, demanding that he get treatment. They send him to a posh resort that promises a luxurious recovery. But the secret location contains none of the high-end amenities featured in the brochure. Something about the staff and other patients isn’t quite right. His experience devolves into a nightmare until his circumstances abruptly change. Ian finds himself enjoying the pleasures of an opulent resort. He’s offered 5-star dining, the comforts of royalty, and extraordinary personal attention. He relishes it all.  Of course, it’s too good to be true. The pampered paradise becomes more horrifying than the previous hell when Ian learns the reason for his stay and its cost.

After Guile, you’ll trust no one, least of all, yourself.
