Dick of the Bay

An original story written by Stephen James Bourne, recorded at his Nurses Bend Studios, Doctors Point Road, Waitati, South Island, New Zealand using a massive and spectacular cast of local available characters and sounds.

Vehicular U-Turns are potentially very dangerous manoeuvers. They are a common occurrence for many New Zealand motorists. In the case of my story, it was one such turn that led to unforeseeable consequences.

An off-duty head of supermarket security finds himself in a small community shaken by a recent tragic death and unwanted intrusion. Compelled through his natural desire for justice and moral duty and an attractive woman, his unearthing of the truth would require a far deeper excavation than he expects for many centuries of historic events to be unearthed.
