Palmer is a teenager with a secret, he pretends to be a sexy woman on the internet fooling lonely men, pretending he likes them and gets money off them before he moves on the next victim.
He gets an email to his personal address saying that they know who he is and what he’s doing. Palmer thinks it’s one of the men he’s conned.
He dumps his girlfriend Lauren but she just wont leave him alone and then the stalker is getting worse.
Lauren goes off the deep end and he finds out part of the stalking was her but who sending the emails to him?
Christian and Malcolm were good mates sharing beers and some smoke.
They saw Christian’s neighbour (Adam) getting a big box delivered, what was it? It was a life size doll which he called Bethany.
The lads got into Adam’s house and caught him just about in the act, the pics went viral.
When Adam found out it lead to Christian been found drowned in the pond.
More murders follow but who is committing them, does the right person get the blame?
I think that there is scope for a follow on to this as the ending left you wanting more.
Evergreen is a insular traveller site.
One morning a young girls is found to be missing her mother finds her dead just outside the caravan.
Everyone is shocked but what’s more shocking is that more children are found dead as time goes by.
The adults come together and decide it’s one of their own, they burn his caravan with him alive inside but for nothing as the killings continue.
They then decide it’s another family from another traveller site so they get revenge but this is for nothing as the murderer is someone they knew many years ago and is getting their own back.
In the end there is only one traveller left along with the killer.
Gruesome story and well written from this great author.
Loved all these novellas in this book.

Like Mr Jester's other novels and short stories this is a great collection of horror and the darkly comedic, which is present in all three of the stories contained but particularly the plastic princess story which was probably my favourite. The writing is by turns chilling and shot though with that grim humour. They are all suspenseful and well written with lots of tension with unique and scarily realistic characters in their own way.
Having them bundled together is not only convenient but great value and means there is no time wasted before getting right into the next story, which is exactly what I wanted to do.

This is what a good horror anthology is supposed to be. David, I applaud you, because this book is fantastic! Each story weaves an engrossing, vivid tale of horror that made me shiver. There was also a good dose of humor that made laugh out loud many times between the chilling descriptions and eerie scenes (the second story especially got me. I don't think I'll ever look at dolls the same way again lol) Overall, Fool's Blood is fantastic and I highly recommend to anyone loves a good scare.

This book is a collection of three suspense packed novels that will surely keep every lover of the genre reading and wanting more. I loved the writing style, the frequent use of dialogues and the creative use of descriptions to make everything real but at the same time very imaginative. The characters are extremely different in between the stories, giving them a really unique style and taste. And this is not all, if you love some good dark humor, these three novels will definitely be the perfect fit for you, i really expect more from this author that I must say, surprised me! Highly recommended!

I have read most of David Jester's books, and thoroughly enjoyed them. The humour in some of the stories had me laughing out loud. I love short stories especially the horror variety, so. David's collections have been a real treat. A couple of problems with typos and and one glaring inconsistency with the Plastic doll story: Adam was bald but able to run his hands through his hair, :/ But more than worthy of five stars
