Description

Melissa is not afraid of being KIDNAPPED; she is more afraid that someone will guess her terrible secret--but are her kidnappers going to be too clever for her? And listen to this, because your sanity might depend on it--even though they are good for you, are you really going to be tempted to hand over any APPLES to Marek the magician? Is anyone about to tell Palmer about the nightmare that awaits him when he goes out on his assignment to provide SECURITY for Miss Hartnell? Hey, Palmer! Sorry, man, but the answer looks as if it is going to be no! It is so sad that Sam Parker's FEET seem to sink him ankle-deep into tragedy and insanity all the time--is there no escape for him despite all his attempts to be free of them? Too many patients in Intensive Care are dying, and no one seems to know why! So is Inspector Jim Murray going to end up with a severe case of INTENSIVE CARE BLUES? Stop that man! Look out, THE SHOPLIFTER is about to get clean away--for the love of Mike, isn't anyone going to listen to Shona? And, finally, is there not anything left in this weary old world that can convince Nigel that SANTA LIVES? Seven stories to make you check under the bed and behind the sofa before you dash to make sure that the front door is locked. Maybe now is the time to give up all hope, because what you have to ask yourself is--despite all your efforts--when it happens, will you see it coming? The first in a two-volume series, here are some scary stories to make you shiver as you look nervously up and down the road before you step out. Prepare yourself for the usual twist at the end! Comment from beta reader: "whichever way you twist it, you'll never guess the twist."show more

About John M W Smith

An author who has had many stories published in the women's weekly magazines and literary journals, John was drawn to writing at an early age. At one time in his teenage years he was reading one book a day---the subject didn't matter, but it needed to grab his interest in the first couple of pages, or he would abandon it. And this is the rule he has since applied to all his writing, believing that if you haven't grabbed the reader straight away, you are not writing well enough.. After graduating with an Honors Degree in History he spent many years in academic publishing, at last leaving to pursue his long-held dream of becoming a writer. "Easily among the very best new writers we have seen," "fresh and original," "creates life-like characters---maybe too life-like" (whatever that means!), are some of the comments made by literary reviewers and consultants about his work. His favorite bands are The Moody Blues and CAKE.
