Carved in Memory by Ethan Jones
This is definitely a short story, you can read it during your lunch break.
But that doesn’t mean it isn’t worth it! Justin Hall is an agent in the Canadian Intelligence Service. He awakens to realize he is hanging upside down in a cell.
In an effort to try to escape, he considers all his options. After being terrorized and tortured, he decides to use his knowledge of his captor’s son’s disability and tries to get his tormentor to aid him in an escape.
You will have to read it yourself to see if he succeeds. But this will keep you wanting more. The story ends way too soon.
Luckily, Arctic Wargame has a teaser included, so you will be able to get more. But be warned, you’ll want to read Arctic Wargame too!
