The taser slipped from his hand and slid along the floor, just out of reach. Ben kicked out with his other leg. The grip on his ankle loosened.

It’s the last excerpt from Shades of Sepia, as I’m now writing Winter Duet, which is the sequel to Shadowboxing.
Here’s the blurb:
Echoes book 2 – Sequel to Shadowboxing
Germany, 1944. With Kristopher finally fit enough to travel, he and Michel begin their journey across Germany toward Switzerland and safety.
Separated in the middle of a warzone, after helping an injured RAF pilot, Kristopher is determined to find Michel again. But how far can he trust the man travelling with him? Whoever he is, he is definitely not the German soldier he appears to be.
Meanwhile Michel mounts a rescue mission. Time is running out. Loyalties are tested and betrayed as the Gestapo close in. Can he reach one of their own before information is revealed that could compromise not only his and Kristopher’s safety, but that of the remaining members of the Allied team?
Or is it already too late for all of them?
