The Bitches

By Stephen Makk

Thriller, Historical fiction | eBook


One girl’s descent into hell. Hell would never be the same again. ‎“My name’s Sofia. I was just a girl from Leningrad; I didn’t deserve it I knew, but they didn’t care. I was sent to a Gulag prison camp. I knew it’d be hell. It was designed to break you. But it would take more than that to break me. I didn’t expect that there’d be two sides to the Gulag, the spirit of defiant human flame burned strong in there; how could I rebel and endanger my new friends?” In harsh inhumane Soviet Gulag corrective labour camps, inmates were worked cold and starved. Many died, some were released and recounted tales of dystopian horror. People were sent to the Gulag on trumped up charges. Starvation, rape, beatings and psychological abuse were common place. If you resisted or struck back you were known as a bitch, whether woman or man. Bitch in Russian is a darker term than in English; it means bitch, slut, and traitor. A bitch is someone who’s beneath contempt; barely human, therefore scum. Sofia would become the bitch from hell. The system would find, that when payback time came; payback would be hell. To her surprise she will draw on hidden strengths and stoop to the lowest depths. However Sofia’s opponents knew it was a fight to the death. It was her or the Gulag.

One of Stephen Makk’s earliest writing assignments was set by a teacher; “Imagine yourself to be a Roman war correspondent,” she said; he did rather well but left the craft for years. He became an Engineer; he practised and lived in Lancashire, Teesside, Suffolk in England and Canada. He now lives in Northern England. He's travelled extensively and dived in many of the world's Seas and Oceans. Curiosity fuels the imagination and what if? Is its offspring. He likes to frame a story or scene from an unusual angle when possible and sometimes does anyway even when it isn't. If it's there think about it; if it's not, think about it until it is.
