A Twist of the Knife

Front Cover
W. F. Howes Limited, Jan 10, 2015 - Detective and mystery stories - 436 pages
Combining stories from ebook story collections 'Short Shockers One' and 'Short Shockers Two', and with never-before-seen new material, this is a story collection you won't forget. From a woman intent on revenge, to a restaurant critic with a fear of the number thirteen, and from a story of ghostly terror to the first ever case of his best-loved Detective, Roy Grace, James exposes the Achilles heels of each of his characters, and makes us question how well we can trust ourselves, and each other.
