My Review

5/5 Stars

A collection of 18 dark, suspenseful stories.

Each story ended with a twist, some more surprising than others. While most of these stories were straight horror, there were a few dark humor pieces mixed into the bunch as well.

My favorites in the collection were:

The Suiter: A one-night stand goes horribly wrong.

 Sledgehammer: A solider fed up with the sounds of construction work takes matters into their own hands.

Camera Shy: A hitman with a habit of recording his victims prior to the kill.

The narration brought every story to life.

This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.

Proud author responsible for Dead by Morning and The Council, fascinated by the dark and macabre. Stephen King is her all time inspiration mixed in with a little bit of Eminem and some faint remnants of the works of Edgar Allen Poe. When she began writing, she started in horror but it somehow drifted into thriller. She loves the 1988 movie Heathers. She was born and raised in Michigan but traveled across the country to where she currently resides in Texas.
