Nightmare Fuel: Covert Affairs
  • Auggie, who is totally blind, enters an unfamiliar house then finds a corpse with his cane. As he's checking the man's pulse, he hears a creaking floorboard and realizes that someone is in the room with him. Yes, the killer is still there, and is in fact standing in full view with their gun out.
  • Your friend or loved one who travels a lot on business is actually an international spy. They could be injured or even killed, and you might never know the real reason why. This could put you or your family in danger without your knowledge.
  • Imagine being shot, then experiencing a bewildering series of dream scenes only to wake up to the shooter standing over your hospital bed smothering you. And you are too weak to stop them!
  • You're only thirty-something years old and you're Annie Walker. When running down an alley, you experience for all the world what looks like a heart attack. That's ... not something to sleep easily over.
  • The Russian mark in "Embassy Row". To elaborate, Annie's cover is blown and she ends up being drugged by the mark who is at least twice her size, while he is on top of her trying to force something into her mouth. She manages to get away before passing out but wakes up and finds herself in his trunk. She manages to get away again, but not before he attempts to drown her by dunking her head in a fountain.
