This story explores the lives of several participants and organisers of a game of Russian Roulette in a seedy urban basement. Exploring the themes of fate and fatalism, "A Sliver of Light" delves into the emotional and physical demons that haunt some people - causing them to become so disenfranchised with life that this is their course of action. These people live on the edge of society - invisible to the majority of people. Stephen Sharp battles his inner demons every day. Whilst Carly Wilson's problems reveal themselves to be a lot more visceral. Judith Scruth is an elderly lady who longs for the love of her deceased husband, whilst Franklin Bletch (tricked into the game) rues a lifetime of sin that has resulted in this reckoning. The organisers of this game are a pair of world weary soldiers of fortune - one a jaded ex-SAS soldier who had recently discovered what it was to love, the other a psychotic torturer who owes his life and his fate to his friend. The story tells the tale of love lost and gained, redemption and reconciliation. There can be only one winner...but in the end of this game, does anybody really ever win?
