See why Simon Bewick has been described as ‘the new voice in horror’ (Amazon review) in a set of stories where the horrors are all-to-real: no vampires, werewolves or zombies here – but ghosts of done deeds and the dark underbelly chills of the everyday world around us offer up a dread throughout the stories-with-surprises throughout.
Praise for the author and previous works:
“…casts a malevolent shadow over small towns and everyday concerns, revealing the dark truths that haunt us all.” – Jerry Gordon, Bram Stoker Award-nominated author of ‘Breaking the World’
“As a reader, I love surprises. I’ve always looked for stories by writers who don’t just understand the twist ending and the value of a good shock, but those who have a little something extra. I wouldn’t blurb for any author who didn’t have that. So start reading…” – Joseph M. Monks, author of Torn to Pieces
“An excellent mix of creeping tension and straight out horror…” – Amazon reviewer
“…full of the type of dark tales that stick with you…” – Amazon reviewer
This collection also includes a free preview of the forthcoming novel ‘The 100% Detective…”
If you like your fiction gritty, nostalgic tales with very modern twists – creepy, tense, sometimes sentimental, always with a jet black shot of humour running through its’ veins, take a look at ‘You Could Make a Killing’…and keep looking over your shoulder.
