Reviews From Amazon

"This is a neat little collection of stories. Murder, it seems, can have a humorous ending, but like any dagger in the back, beware of that twist. As the stories unfold, it's clear the author enjoys black humour but as the collection continues there are some stories that chill. If you like your murder the Midsomer way, then this will be for you."

"A pacy collection of short stories, each with a theme of murder yet very individual tales. From a piece of flash fiction to more detailed plots that thicken as you read the twist in the tail catches you unawares every time without feeling the reader cheated. Great to dip into when you have time to yourself."

"If you like your murders short, sharp and definitely NOT sweet then this is the book for you. Each story twists at the end in an unexpected way. A great little book for dipping into when you're not in the mood for a novel."
