A collection of short stories, a series of twist endings, and one author's dark steps back into writing...
A teenage boy waits to take a sinister test he may or may not pass; a new father hears a strange voice on his daughter's baby monitor; a poisoner's best-laid plans go terribly astray; an enigmatic man gets as close to death as he can; a young boy wonders why Christmas just doesn't feel right this year; after the year from hell, a man is driven to extreme measures; a dying man reveals a black secret to his son; and, after four years in limbo, a man's life starts to unravel...
These dark tales of the unexpected are for fans of the short fiction of Stephen King, David Morrell and Dean Koontz. Step outside of the every day and take dark steps into a shadowy place...
What they're saying about it:
"An excellent collection of short fiction. The author takes you skillfully but entertainingly to where he wants you to be. A twist in every tale, some spottable but a few suprises. All adeptly written. An excellent effort all round didn't want to put it down. My only complaint, not enough of it.
