This review covers the first 3 installments.
The genius of these short stories is that the main characters are very boring, very ordinary people whose lives suddenly go really wrong. You can imagine how confused and helpless they feel as it could be you, or your neighbour, in the same position - just as unlikely.
Gordon, the boring fish-man/family-man and Morna, the dissatisfied-with-her-lot wife, find themselves plunged into situations they they would only have read about, or watched on TV - never imagining that they would ever be in the same situations.
As each part finishes I have really wanted to know what happens next, to this hapless couple, which is why I have given this series a high rating. I would prefer it to just be one longer novel, however, but that is only as I'm not really a fan of short stories per se. I will carry on buying this series though, as it it is written, as I have engaged with this couple and need to know what happens next...

This is the opening of a longer work, the beginning of a series that looks like it's going to be a cracker.

Gordon's missing when Morna comes home. And his dog's been brutally murdered. And there's an unusual smell that causes Morna some concern.

As a beginning, this works really well. It has me ready for part 2. There's something of the comedy of Douglas Lindsay here in the laid back approach to finding terror in everyday lives.

Let's see how this warms up. I have a feeling it's going to get pretty hot.

The only reason I haven't gone for 5 stars here is that, left hanging for part 2, I'm not sure I can go the full package until I've seen where things move to next.

Great job, McDroll.

There are two reasons people will be talking about "The Wrong Delivery - Corrin's Eyes," by McDroll:

1) The depiction of a dog's gruesome death in the first paragraphs.

2) The twist at the end that you won't see coming.

The story opens with Morna - one half of a couple (the husband being Gordon) in Scotland - finding their dog Corrin dead outside their home. As Morna makes her way to the house, she's hit with another shock that makes it clear Corrin's death was no accident.

Killing animals (and for that matter, children) in fiction has always been a sensitive topic. Some people will be appalled that this short story opens in such a way. They'd be overreacting. Be it animals or children, the difference between a gratuitous death and a justifiable one (in the writing sense) is how it relates to the plot. In this case, McDroll uses the death as the pivot on which the entire story revolves. There's a reason the story is called "Corrin's Eyes" and not "Morna's Bad Day."

As for the twist, I'm not giving that away in the least bit. All I can say is after I read the ending, I went back and re-read the whole thing. The non-linear format of the story begs for it. Readers will find the most satisfaction when they answer that calling.

McDroll once again proves herself as one of the most capable indie crime authors today. Give this short story a read.
