Blurb; The debut short story collection from the acclaimed author of The Chalk Man, featuring ten bone-chilling and mind-bending tales
Timeslips. Doomsday scenarios. Killer butterflies. C. J. Tudor’s novels are widely acclaimed for their dark, twisty suspense plots, but with A Sliver of Darkness, she pulls us even further into her dizzying imagination.
In Final Course, the world has descended into darkness, but a group of old friends make time for one last dinner party. In Runaway Blues, thwarted love, revenge, and something very nasty stowed in a hat box converge. In Gloria, a strange girl at a service station endears herself to a cold-hearted killer, but can a leopard really change its spots? And in I’m Not Ted, a case of mistaken identity has unforeseen, fatal consequences.
Riveting and explosively original, A Sliver of Darkness is C. J. Tudor at her most wicked and uninhibited.
My Review; I picked this up from my library. I must admit this is the first book I have read by this author, and it contains 12 short stories, which I love, and I prefer a short story now and again. Perfect for busy lives or lack of reading mojo. All the stories vary differently, but all are brilliant. A great range of stories here. It’s an easy read. Some stories stand out from others, and others I can remember more. But I really enjoyed the whole short story collection. A well-deserved four stars from me.
