Hiding The ‘Second’ SIM Card

Cheaters know what I’m talking about. Good secrets stay hidden inside these tiny, inoffensive bits of technology. The best secrets hide within the second SIM. The trick to cheating right is to hide that card without it being found, ever.

Linda is a seasoned cheater. 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.

No calls or messages before nine. All contact must end by three. That’s when the original SIM cards are switched back. Those others vanish until nine o’clock the following day.

Linda and Anthony meet at parks and hotels.

There’s a good reason for Linda to hide hers. Her husband goes through her phone after he gets home. He doesn’t do it in front of her. He waits until she has left the room. Peeking through the crack of a door and its frame, Linda watches on and smiles. He’ll never find what he’s looking for. It’s not there.

What an asshole.

“That bastard doesn’t trust me,” she says to Anthony. “Can you believe that?”


SEETHINGS starts with a secret second SIM card but ends in murder. Everything about the victim’s private life is stored on a thing no bigger than a thumbnail. Will that second SIM be found and reveal the truth about how she died or could it be a diversion from a much bigger story?

Five women’s bodies are discovered after the nights of thunderstorms. Their spouses are suspected of the crimes, but it becomes clear that someone else is responsible. There’s no blood and few clues. A storm photographer who specialises in taking pictures of lightning may be the only witness.
