First, a disclaimer... I know the author personally. He's been the writer and director of two amateur stage productions I've been involved with.

Dave has written two novels in a series (a third is coming, I'm told) which uniquely combine fantasy with detective mystery. I've enjoyed the novels and have always considered Dave to be a competent, skilled and entertaining writer.

This collection of short stories elevates my opinion of Dave to that of real genius.

Not all the stories are great... "Pink With Envy" is a weak start to the collection, but the next three stories are entertaining with novel twists.

But it's stories like "They Wouldn't Call It Murder", "The Boys of Summer", "Dark and Deep" and the amazing "Bad Day" that really excel, with wonderful character portraits, and dark and violent imagery and mood that you end up savouring after finishing the story.

This is more than a "coffee break" collection, it's a book well worth adding to your Kindle.

I absolutely loved the archer and Baines novels and picked this up based on those books. Maybe short stories are just not my thing anymore as although some of the stories were well written I just didn't enjoy this collection as a whole. Nothing against Mr Sivers though, as I said I love the archer and baines books

I read this collection of short stories in two stage but if you have time is can easily be done in one sitting. All of the stories contained a twist and a moral/lesson that all of us we can learn at some point in our lives.

I found this collection of short stories most entertaining. Each tale flows nicely and they have good endings. A good read.
