Take the last sharp turn on a crooked road and you might find yourself face to face with a desperate killer, or a clever con man, or a restless spirit whose face is eerily familiar. In the tradition of The Twilight Zone, the 12 stories in this collection all share one common trait; each one ends with a delicious, unexpected twist. In "The Woman Upstairs," a claustrophobic housewife uses extreme measures to escape from both a cramped apartment and a confining marriage. "The Sorrow Business" tells how a devious reporter suffers the consequences after hounding a murder victim's family for an interview. And in "Deep in the Roaring Fork," a man lost in the backwoods of Colorado stumbles across a lonely tavern whose bartender knows far too many details about his life---and about his death. Includes 7 stories previously published in mystery magazines like Over My Dead Body and Unreality, as well as 5 brand new stories from award-winning writer Ty Treadwell.
