One more step and he would sail from this tropical island asylum, suspended—free from all restraints until the outcrop of boulders broke his fall. He wondered what he would feel in those first moments of freedom.

Garrick and Mara are both talented writers of mystery novels and have a knack for creating twisted stories. Additionally, another similarity brings them even closer together – they’re both in an asylum.

Seasoned author Greta Manville returns to the realm of fiction with her new novel, “Flight Into Reality” (published by iUniverse), which chronicles what happens when murder-mystery becomes reality for Garrick and Mara.

Things at the Caribbean asylum have never been pleasant, but they are tolerable. This quickly changes when Garrick and Mara witness one of the workers commit murder. With Mara’s daughter visiting and quickly falling for the man Garrick and Mara know is the murderer, they are left to solve the case on their own before the murderer has a chance to strike again.

An excerpt from “Flight Into Reality”:

“Garrick Thomas edged closer to the rim, looked over the cliff ’s edge to the crashing sea far below. One more step and he would sail from this tropical island asylum, suspended—free from all restraints until the outcrop of boulders broke his fall. He wondered what he would feel in those first moments of freedom. Release? Regret?”
