Ross Bentley has learned to harness his supernatural gifts but as he is drawn ever further into a web of deceit and corruption he realises he must get out. So he disappears and turns his back on the 'Guild' in order to escape his past. In this the third fast-paced adventure in the 'secret' series by Ian Somers, a friend calls in a favour of Ross supposedly for one last task. But all is not as it seems and Ross must choose which side to fight on. Will he turn his back on the Guild forever? Or will he fight to save the Guild members who have kept so much from him?

The Secret Gift by Ian Somers
Book three in in the Ross Bentley series Ross has spent the past twelve months in hiding in the west coast of Ireland. He has turned his back on the Guild and his supernatural gifts including an ability to move things with his mind. In trying to escape his past and the dangers brought with his gifts, Ross has spiralled into a world of anxiety and depression and, with Cathy leaving for Paris, Ross is completely alone. Suddenly an unexpected visitor arrives. Hunter has come to call in his favour. Through loneliness and a sense of debt, Ross agrees to join Hunter for one day only. What first appears to be a simple task becomes so much more. Ross is dragged back into the world of the gifted where a supernatural war is about to break loose.
