“Doorways is an exciting read, aimed at the fantasy thriller market who like their monsters exploding from the shadows. The plot follows the tortured life of detective Bermuda Jones, a man cursed with the “knack,” meaning Bermuda sees the creatures from the dark Otherside which threaten our world…and are invisible to normal / sane people. He is aided and abetted by a sword carrying sidekick nobody else can see – Argyle – both working for the BTCO. Their role is to investigate victims who have been dragged into the Otherside, the clues leading them to a malevolent monster of an antagonist who has evil plans for world domination / destruction. The story moves at a lightning pace and the writing is jam packed with action and excitement. Bermuda is a good main character, so terrified of the Otherside that he has abandoned his loving wife and daughter… the author taking the cliche of the tortured soul and turning it up full volume. Doorways by Robert Enright is great fun!” – Rob Dearden
The Otherside is located at the fringes of our world, hiding in plain sight and existing within our shadows. Shielded from humanity, the Otherside is watched over by the BTCO, a highly secret government agency.

Franklyn ‘Bermuda’ Jones is the BTCO’s finest agent, the only human to have passed to The Otherside and returned. Gifted with the ability to physically interact with The Otherside, Bermuda reluctantly stands between both worlds, pining for the life he had to leave behind and the daughter he can no longer see. Teamed with Argyle, an enigmatic Otherside warrior, Bermuda is assigned the case of a missing woman who has vanished under mysterious circumstances.
As Bermuda delves further into the disappearance, he uncovers a conspiracy that threatens to destroy the truce between two worlds…and finds himself in a race against time to safeguard humanity’s very existence.Read More
