Thirteen fabulous crime stories from Ben Westerham’s highly popular ‘Shorts in the Dark’ series. It’s time to take a wander into the darker recesses of the mind.

The Old Man’s Shed – School-boy Jacob Whistler finds his neighbour’s shed an irresistible temptation. But what is it he finds lurking inside?

Alone in the Dark - “There’s something about watching others in the night that appeals to me. It always has.”

The Pond - Revenge can come in many guises and sometimes from places we would never have expected.

A Pound Coin – Can a life really be worth so little?

Walking into Trouble – Family emotions can be more extreme than most.

A Parcel of Trouble – Private investigator Nat Gillies receives an unexpected parcel that he soon wishes he’d never set eyes on.

Money Love – When the love of money proves greater than the love of another human-being, the outcome is not likely to be a happy one.

'Harry Minch' - Revenge is a boomerang that garage owner Harry Minch fails to see coming.

'The Handbag' – A woman’s handbag can be more dangerous than you might think.

‘The Price of Envy’ - Charlie Mean is consumed by envy. For someone it will prove fatal.

'360 Degree Feedback' - They say feedback is a gift, but sometimes what it gives can be entirely unexpected.

‘The Old Hand’ - An ageing crook thinks it’s time to do a good deed, but is his help really wanted?

‘Obsession’ - Obsession can make a man blind to reality and drive him to the edge of madness.

It’s dark. It’s criminal. It’s unmissable.

About the Author

Ben is the author of two crime and mystery series. The David Good private investigator stories are set in 1980s London, featuring a PI in tune with his neck of the woods and in possession of some distinctly pliable morals. The Banbury Cross Murder Mystery stories are classic murder mysteries set in the rural market town of Banbury during the early 1960s, featuring the curmudgeonly Inspector Leslie Dykeman and the irascible Sergeant Stanley Shapes.

Ben's writing places an emphasis on strongly developed characters and invariably comes served with a side-order of humour.

Born in London, Ben now lives in rural Northamptonshire in the English Midlands, with his family and a heavily over-worked computer.

He writes just about every day and some of the resulting stories and other material is made available for free exclusively to readers who register here
