Binary Witness Excerpt #12 – Cathays Bridge

Last in this photo-excerpt series for Binary Witness. You can find the collected pictures on Pinterest,Facebook and Tumblr. As she passed under the bridge, a shiver went down her spine, the feeling of being watched settling between her shoulder blades. Gina looked around—nothing. The whole road was deserted, and she shook her head and walked on. This stupid serial killer was making her jumpy. Like what you see? Read the book!

Binary Witness Excerpt #11 – Behind Cardiff Central

“Do you have eyes on him?” His earpiece crackled to life with Bryn’s voice, and Jason tried to answer between aching breaths. “He’s heading…out for…Penarth Road!” The car park was badly lit, open ground on Sunday night, but the man was damn fast. Jason tore after him, pumping his arms despite the screeching pain above his right elbow. “Cars are right behind you,” Bryn said in his ear and Jason could hear the sirens. He didn’t have time to look back, as they ran out of the car park. Like what you see? Read the book!

Binary Witness Excerpt #10 – St Mary’s Street

Somehow she kept her feet and staggered down St. Mary’s Street, the heart of Cardiff’s nightlife, looking for something to soak up the alcohol sloshing in her stomach. Dark deserted shops stood flush against the glare of clubs and bars, boys out front for a fag catcalling as she passed and the street awash with debris from McDonald’s. Like what you see?

Binary Witness Excerpt #9: The Blue Door

With a deep breath, Jason got out the car and started down the street. Number 22 with the blue door—but the door was open and there were a pile of boxes and carrier bags on the pavement. A couple of lads were sitting on the wall outside with beer in hand, as a knockout brunette in a T-shirt dress and leggings stumbled out with her arms full of kitchenware. “Little help, guys?” Like what you see?

Binary Witness Excerpt #8: Tyndall Street

She thought she could see a couple of hotels in the distance. She’d ask them for directions, or maybe they’d call her a taxi. Few men could resist a girl shivering in their lobby, even if she looked like she was more water than woman. “A moisten bint.” But, as luck would have it, she heard a car come up behind her. She turned to stare into the headlights and stuck her arm out, waving frantically to flag down the longed-for taxi and trying not to totter backwards in her six-inchers. Photography by Amy Davies.

Binary Witness Excerpt #7: Millennium Stadium

After a Sunday rest, I'm back with more beautiful shots of Cardiff to go with brief sketches of the city from my novel Binary Witness. From under the shadow of the Millennium Stadium, he emerged opposite the walled-in greenery of Bute Park before continuing on across the river and into Canton. Here, the pound shops rubbed shoulders with bohemian cafés and Indian restaurants, and Jason caught a whiff of marijuana floating alongside the strong smell of curry. Photography by Amy Davies.

Binary Witness Excerpt #6: Aneurin Bevan

Melody’s route followed the walls of the castle, past the statue of the intense Aneurin Bevan and down St. Mary’s Street. She was practically alone on the street, too late for latecomers and too early for closing. She was wrapped tight against the wind and rain, swaying like a willow tree. She carried herself with a relaxed, confident air, ironic for her gallows walk. Photography by Amy Davies. Like what you see? Read the book!

Binary Witness Photo #3: River Taff

It kept coming back to the river. Funny that Dan and Amy had come to the same conclusion. Why was the river such a good place to dump a body? Or was it all nonsense? With the Taff swollen from the autumn floodwaters, the body would probably be carried downstream until it hit the Cardiff Bay Barrage. Surely they would notice that? They must have sensors or something to stop the thing getting blocked. Photography by Amy Davies. Like what you see? Read the book!

Binary Witness Photo #2: Brains bridge

it's Brains you want! The cameras grew sparser away from the city centre and Amy struggled to follow her. Melody crossed roads haphazardly before finally disappearing under the Brains bridge towards the Bay. Amy frantically searched her camera database, but the next set she had was in the Bay proper or much farther along the Taff. Photography by Amy Davies. Like what you see? Read the book!

Binary Witness Photo #1: Bute Street

Thanks to the generous Amy Davies, photographer extraordinaire, I have a beautiful series of pictures to share over the next two weeks. These photos illustrate specific segments of Binary Witness and I am delighted to share them with their accompanying excerpts. Photo #1: Bute Street Jason made for Bute Street, his home in the former Docklands—the bit that hadn’t been overhauled for the shiny new Cardiff Bay. His mind was on dinner and how much tea he could drink before it was ready. But as soon as he stepped back into his territory, he was aware something was wrong. He knew this part of town like it was his family but now it seemed hostile, threatening. The last edge of dusk was fading away and he put his head down and walked faster. Suddenly, he didn’t want to be out alone. Like what you see? Read the book! You can buy Binary Witness at the following retailers: Carina Press | Amazon | Barnes & Noble |...
