Lies & Deceptions Lies & Deceptions


Richie Ryan is dead - struck down by his friend and mentor, Duncan MacLeod. The Immortal is lost in grief....

The Highlander stared to the sky, his arms spread in supplication to whatever forces had brought him to this. Tears cascaded down his face. Then, with one rapid, almost cruel movement, he turned the knife on himself.

....And his comrades are also feeling the affect of the tragedy....

He (Methos) was like a dog with a bone, hard, defensive and, in his own way, desperate to resolve the quandary. Joe had rarely felt so alone among people he considered friends.

....What is Methos' quandary that Dawson's reaction would be....

A creeping horror seeped into Joe as he came to the same conclusions as his companion.

....Yet grief is not enough for the forces plaguing the Highlander....

Duncan's blood ran as ice-water as he saw the face...there was no smile on the young features, no welcoming wave, this was a spectre of his crime. Richie had returned to haunt him.

....Is Richie a creature of vengeance or merely one of the many faces of the greater Evil that once has many familiar forms?....

"Peek-a-boo!" the image of Kronos leered, his eyes flashing a deep red.

....Is the Highlander finally defeated?....

MacLeod was spent, the last of his defence shivering over his body...His cry deepened with the harsh tone of Ahriman.

....What is the nature of the images haunting MacLeod? Is it truly Richie's ghost bedevilling the Highlander, or more, much more? Deception, cold and dangerous, but can it hold hope for Duncan MacLeod and for Richie Ryan?
