Some men, somewhere in the world, equate the salty taste of blood with the exotic flavour of lust. Fort them, it is not the why's and wherefore's of their exploits that are important, but their aftertaste and the cadence they leave in the heart. This book contains three out-of-the-ordinary stories. Someone Else tells what happens when a middle-level finance director decided to restart his life from scratch and undergoes a kind of metamorphosis. "The High Roller" tells of the three days of debauchery that herald a weak-willed womaniser's descent into the depths of depravity. "I'm the One Who's Bad" tells of a young concert pianist's morbid passion for an older woman that unfolds as they are waiting to be rescued in a lifeboat after a serious shipping accident.
