Arissa, a British poet, had gotten into deep trouble; one wrong turn down the road and she would have to accept the fact that death was approaching her, very soon! This is her story.
As Arissa and Nicholas, Arrissa’s younger brother, a mechanic, were headed on their way home after a late night party, they were about to encounter a real thrill, their last one! While they drove, Arissa had a sense that something dreadful was going to happen.
