Product Description

Product Description

A collection of seven stories of mystery and terror:

The Foolish Light: The instructions were simple: to scatter his father's ashes in a specific location at midnight. On the edge of a remote village the fog drifts slowly across the marshes and the nightmare begins. He thought the task would be simple. He was wrong.

The Hole: When a young lawyer is sent to a house to visit a client he discovers that some houses have secrets that should never be disturbed. Why is the client so nervous? Who is the strange woman wandering around the cellar?

The Devil Knows: He had simple rules. Do the hit and leave, but when the clock strikes midnight all hell is let loose. He had only made one mistake. It was such a small mistake and who would ever know?

Rich Man Poor Man: When a group of friends are given the exact dates and times of their deaths what do they do? No one really believes until the dying starts. Tragic accidents or something far more sinister?

All The Fools: When a practical joke goes terribly wrong, the body count soon spirals out of control.

The Troll in The Hole: When two builders are asked to dig up and replace the floor of an old cellar it sounds like easy money, but then a seemingly bottomless hole is found. What comes out of the hole is more than they could ever have bargained for. The promise of wealth beyond their imagination leads them into a gruesome chain of events. Some people will do anything for gold.

The Witch's Cave: When a newly wed couple stop on a country road to explore a cave they get more than just holiday memories. There is a sign, but it does not seem to be on the tourist route. They soon discover that the old lady that watches over the cave is not as harmless as she appears.

3.0 out of 5 stars Entertaining 20 Jun 2011
By Pat
Format:Kindle Edition
I enjoyed the stories, I thought they were fun to read especially 'All the Fools'. Most of it was well written but I tend to agree with a previous reviewer that it was somewhat spoiled by spelling mistakes, grammatical errors and strange continuity errors, eg one character could 'smell smoke' several times and later 'could still smell tobacco' (smoke and tobacco are NOT the same thing). I feel all of these errors could have been sorted out by getting a friend to proof read it before publishing. Also, a few of the endings were rather weak or had been used before, but then I do read a lot of short stories so expect high standards. A bad ending is a let down but doesn't necessarily spoil a good story so having said all that, I would probably still read more from the same author - it was a good price (I paid 69p) for some entertaining reading.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good stories, shame about the typos 17 Jun 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This was a chilling set of tales, well enough written but not, as a previous reviewer has suggested, in the same class as Stephen King.

This would have been a four star rating were it not for the large number of typos littering every page. It looks as if the author might have used voice recognition software to create the stories as some of the errors are very strange: sty instead of stile, waive instead of wave, shuttered instead of shuddered etc. And there was, of course, the usual misuse of there, their and they're and confusion between break and brake.

Worst of all was the way in which the name of one of the characters in Rich Man Poor Man suddenly changed from Stephanie to Christine a third of the way into the story.

Nice try, but more attention to detail is required to secure a better rating from me.
