Hallowe’en may have been a few weeks ago now, but giving yourself a tasty scare never gets old. Step forward Mr. Peter James, the highly successful and popular crime writer. In this collection of short stories, many inspired by true events, Peter will send chills up your spine and make you jump at all those bumps in the night. Easily digestible and each one as fantastically goosebump-inducing as the last, these stories are all miniature masterpieces in their own right. All the more so when you realise that one of them is about the author’s very own haunted house. Brilliant stuff. * * * *
