Financial Times review
"This book hit me like a freight train, I'm still reeling. This is a great collection of novellas/" All Things Stephen King
My blurb: The utterly chilling story 1922 takes gruesome to a new level. When a marriage sours over a dispute involving some property, a plan is devised to put an end to said dispute; a deadly end. 1922 tells a grisly story about a family and others decimated by treachery, madness, and murder because a couple could not compromise.
While reading the tale at midnight last night this song kept replaying in my mind.
The Fixx One Thing Leads To Another go here to read the lyrics. When this story ended I thought; Rats, it's over!
The story Big Driver takes your emotions on a wild ride. This is a story about a mystery writer named Tess. When Tess is returning home from a speaking engagement for a book group, she is ensnared in a trap meant to end her life. You will find that Tess’ resolve is admirable and quite cunning.
Fair Extension was a good story that stirred overwhelming feelings of pity for Tom Goodhugh. ****SPOILER ALERT! Tom Goodhugh 'falls from grace' in the worst way possible. No girlfriend-stealing person deserves what happened to him.END SPOILER ALERT**** The ending left me thinking hmmmm, wasn't expecting that! I was really hoping for a different outcome for Streeter.
In the expertly-written story called A Good Marriage, King writes a thought-provoking story about betrayal, deception, and intense fear. This story begs the questions, how well do you really know your spouse (or anyone close to you) and what would I do if I was in the same situation? This is one of those stories that make you go hmmmmm...
