The author uses clever dialogue to build tension in a slow psychological buildup to a frightening final climax. This avoiding of “bumps-in-the-night” storytelling gave me more of a shock at the end than a series of shocks along the way.
Interplay between the characters through dialogue brings them to life and speeds the story along. The writing is strong and the way each character speaks and acts as a true individual makes them appear in my head and imagination as real people. This idea of showing character and viewpoint through dialogue delivers the story in a manner far clearer than if the author wrote out every detail of what is happening. A clever approach that unfolds the action and horror slowly in my mind in the manner of a Hitchcock film. By the end of each story I was scared almost to death. These well-written stories in Urban Horror 3 are entertaining and frightening at the same time to give a great read…

3rd time a master of suspenseful horror, the author matches and exceeds his earlier volumes. This is an echo of the very best in the genre: Dahl's "Tales of the Unexpected" with the edge of mainstream horror.

Hmmm... not very horrible really. Became less gripped as the stories went on unfortunately. And some bits like the accident in the last story need rewriting/rethinking.
