Overview

Lamb Chops and Chainsaws is the first volume in the Human Nature Series.

(Warning: The author would like to point out that this book contains graphic language and descriptions of explicit sex and brutal violence).

What are your neighbours really like once their front door slams shut? Are your children's teachers' sound-of-mind? Has your partner got an evil, sinister side? Is a member of your family a murderer? These questions, and more, are examined in a collection of nine disturbing short stories; tales about the darker side of human nature.

Read about a wannabe serial killer who starts his reign of terror on the wrong footing. A Kindergarten teacher who has deep psychological problems that jeopardizes the safety of the children. Why a child of nine turns to violence in retaliation for drug smugglers slaughtering her parents. A fanatical mother who believes her thirteen-year-old son is possessed by the devil. How one killer spirals out of control and in his haste for victims makes a fatal mistake. A government trained killer who was set up as a scapegoat. Or a serial killer who has captured the attention of the world, and has set up one final, sickening display. What does it take to push someone that little bit too far and turn them into a killer? Find out when a savage murder is committed over a packet of lamb chops.

Strangers will never seem the same again.

The story of a wannabe serial killer who's not to clever when it comes to picking his victims.

Amazon UK 5 star review - Anita Fancett
Brilliant book with a twist to every story couldn't put the book down so lost a nights sleep. I will be reading the book again.
Amazon UK 5 star review - Louise Makepeace-Nunn
For anybody who enjoys a good horror story and has a morbid fascination. I strongly recommend. Johnson brings a good sense of humour to the disturbing and macabre.
Amazon UK 5 star review - R.J 98
Truly, I have not read such an exceptional book in a long time. Curiously written, leaving the reader to ponder on the horror for hours to come. Phenomenal!
Amazon USA 5 star review - Jeff B.
I have been seeking, for quite awhile now, a collection of horror stories that do not involve ghosts, zombies, vampires, etc-- but instead are 100 percent about really bad people, the things they do, and the consequences of their actions. Give me psychos, sociopaths, the whackos who scare us with just a look. These 9 stories have them all and the consequences of their actions is not always what they planned.
Amazon USA 5 star review - Denise V.
I am new to Glen Johnson but I will now read anything I can find from him! I am a horror junkie and I love all of his short stories. I am currently reading book three of this series, french fries and flamethrowers... I love it!
