Narrowly escaping assault on the road, hitchhiker Dani accepts an offer of hospitality from a gentle stranger; but the grisly stories he tells of the town loom closer than she suspects.

The scene is set for a final showdown with a mysterious entity known only as the Shrike...

The stories are okay but I felt each ended without resolution. The first while extremely disturbing, could totally stand alone and be further developed. It was the only one I found myself invested in and caring about the characters. Written in British enlish also.

Author is a master at the horror genre. A Steven King like author from the UK-- only awesomer.

Really creative plot twists that expose you to a variety of characters while maintaining a continuous flow. Looking forward to reading more on Allen and his sister in The Faceless.

I have a 20 page limit. If a book hasn't pulled me into the story by then, I don't bother reading the rest. The third story didn't make the cut. All of his characters are fuzzy and hard to connect to, so the desire to know what happened to them next just wasn't there for me.

Quick, easy read. Dark and disturbing with a great action packed conclusion. However this wasn't a story that will stick with me very long. But to sit down and read it in one sitting, for about half an hour? It's short and free, so yes, I would recommend this to readers that enjoy the horror genre, or ghost stories.

Evocative, chilling, often disturbing.

The first story kind of shocked me but unfortunately horrible things like that do happen in real life.
