Unfortunately, for June, the truth is a lot. Physical shortcomings aside, Duncan proves, in the time it takes to gobble down a few bites, to be severely emotionally unstable. Accelerated talk of anniversaries and spending the day together prompts June to reassess her situation and she bolts out the back door. Young and fit, she mounts the wooden privacy fence with ease. In a flash, Duncan's screams for help and the violent gnashing of his big, black German Shepherd's jaws on her inner thigh break June's confidence completely. She is trapped. Nobody can hear her pleas for help. Nobody will be coming to rescue her.
Duncan's access to medical sedatives and his delusional obsession with he and June being soulmates have June in a seemingly impenetrable sort of bondage of which her personal cunningness is her only hope of escape. The plot of Soulmates thickens to horrifying levels as Mccullah uses a third person subjective multiple point of view narrative style to reveal ever-sickening twists right up through the story's blood-splattering end.
Mccullah's use of timing and topical content ties June's dreadful situation to the real life threats that we of modern times face every day. So many people freely post their personal likes, wishes, wants, and dreams to social media pages for prying eyes all over the world to see. Duncan is a perfect example of a predator lurking behind the veil of a computer screen laying out meticulously planned schemes for making his perverted dreams with unsuspecting victims come to fruition. This frightening tale will make every reader evaluate the amount of caution they use when advertising themselves through sites like Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, and Instagram.
