Editorial Reviews

Chizine Reviews - W.D. Gagliani
"Gifford delivers the kind of story that jabs slivers under your nails, thorns in your palms, and needles and pins in your eyes, always with a sardonic smile. The sharply-drawn portraits are all the more effective for their overall brevity, delivering their tiny thrusts in just the right tone. This collection of 33 curiously twisted tales will enhance any rainy evening's reading, leaving a taste for more of P.S. Gifford's mystery stew."
