PRLog - Feb. 21, 2014 - PASADENA, Calif. -- "The Shortcut", the newest controversial psychological thriller released by Tipping Point Publishing vividly shows us a possible experience in the desert where nothing appears to be as it is - or is it? The author Richard McCullough treats us to an evening you will not soon forget, a night where shadows have fangs and imagination reigns supreme. Written in a style that would make Edgar Allen Poe proud and cause Stephen King to leave his lights on.
The Shortcut by Richard A McCullough
There is sometimes a fine line between what is and what appears to be, between sanity and the world on the other side of the veil. The desert is a very strange and mysterious place. You can't believe what you see and only half of what you hear. It's all illusion.
Reviews for “The Shortcut” reflect that mystery, that other worldly realm:
“Although the desert can be big and beautiful in its emptiness during the daylight it can become quite a different and frightening place at night. You never know what's waiting for you out there.” - - Jessie
“It just keeps twisting and turning and the characters are so compelling. The writer grabs you and shakes the life out or you, and then….” - - Karla Swanson
“This is a very creepy tale of a good idea gone bad, or maybe a bad idea in the first place. The couple in the story make a decision that leads them into a terrifying night of unexpected horrors…. this book catches your attention right from the opening sentences and keeps you glued in through to the final period. I really like the way the author keeps switching back and forth between scenes, leaving you with mini cliff hangers at every turn. You just can't wait to get back to find out what happens next.” - - Barb C.
