|Editorial Review||"Wow. What a series of stories this book contains. Finished all three of them in just one day. Incredible writing. All three of the stories in this book have endings that will completely shock you..." - Lacey "The endings of the three stories are different from each other and from what you normally expect from that kind of book. More mature than the classic, shocking ones you can find in so many short horror stories from past and present. It was refreshing and good..." - Anya "If I had to compare this to anything I have read before, I would have to say early Stephen King short stories. They have the same twisted endings that really make you think and of course want more. I cannot recommend this collection highly enough..." - Suzy S|
