As an author, D. C. Macey has always been fascinated by the conflict between good and evil that seems to have dogged the footsteps of man throughout the ages. No matter how heavily evil is defeated, given time it will always return – seeping in through life’s cracks, spreading and growing to reassert its malign influence. Similarly, the innate goodness and humanity found in ordinary people can never quite be crushed into oblivion by the excesses of evil. There is always hope of a better, safer tomorrow.
