  WSR Narrative Review
Story Synopsis:
Consisting of three separate short stories with overlapping themes and featuring the same main cast members, this metaphysical riddle will keep you guessing to the end and beyond. In the three stories, the main character, Gary/Gavin/Gabriel (Reynolds) finds clues that make him believe his life is not quiet normal. Haunted by a cryptic note written in his own hand that he has no recollection of writing, Gary is urged to look for The Nines. Having no idea what the note means, Gary decides to try to unravel the mystery surrounding his existence. (Stacey Pendry)
