Cheaters know the deal. Their best secrets hide inside these tiny, inoffensive objects. A second SIM hides the best of them while fortifying the greatest of lies. The trick to keeping the cheating order right is to hide the card without it being found, ever.
Linda does the right thing. She hides hers in the fold of her car seat and then swaps it for her second SIM after she gets on the road. Anthony keeps his under the insole of his shoe.
There are other rules, of course.
No calls or messages before 9am. A text message arrives after nine and then, only then, does the second SIM replace the first. All contact must end by three. That’s when the original SIM cards are returned to their rightful places, while the others mysteriously vanish again.
There’s a reason for this. Linda’s husband checks her phone every day. What an asshole. He doesn’t do it in front of her. He waits until she has left the room. Peeking through the crack of a door, she watches him and smiles. He’ll never find what he’s looking for. It’s hidden somewhere else.
“That bastard doesn’t trust me,” she says. “Can you believe that?“
SEETHINGS starts with a secret SIM card, but it ends in murder. Everything about the victim’s secret life is stored on a thing which is no bigger than a thumbnail. Will that SIM ever be found and reveal the truth about how she died?

“Forman’s writing style is artful, with the protagonist Mitchell’s warped thought processes masterfully exposed. The author has a powerful and vivid command of language and his word pictures are stark and disturbingly real.”– Linda J Bettenay, author of ‘Secrets Mothers Keep’ and ‘Wishes For Starlight’.
