Martha Whittington invites readers to take a break from the doldrums of daily
routine and delve into a world where ordinary lives are blindsided by the bizarre.

Fennigan Case," two news reporters step across the threshold of a creepy house and
into another dimension. "A Unique Team" follows another investigative journalist as
he plunges into international intrigue. Readers explore the mind of a psychic
teenager in "The Hidden Knowledge" and meet a wicked woman who holds an entire
town hostage with her dark magic in "The Witch". Two brothers endure tragedy in a
remote corner of the world in "Sand," and a couple experiences any parent's worst
nightmare in "The Gifted Child".
Throughout The Storyteller, Whittington weaves a macabre tapestry of drama,
suspense and fast-paced action. From the dangers of the Egyptian desert to the
cold streets of New York, she takes readers on a thrilling journey along the knife-
edge between this world and the unknown. A captivating read for fans of the
disturbingly weird. The Storyteller delivers thrills and chills at each turn of the page.
