A fantastic collection of short stories by Peter James. Combining stories from ebook story collections Short Shockers One and Short Shockers Two, and with never-before-seen new material, this is a story collection you won't forget.
From a woman intent on revenge, to a restaurant critic with a fear of the number thirteen, and from a story of ghostly terror to the first ever case of his best-loved Detective, Roy Grace, James exposes the Achilles heels of each of his characters, and makes us question how well we can trust ourselves, and each other.
Funny, sad, but always shocking, each tale carries a twist that will haunt readers for days after they turn the final page . . .

I really enjoyed this book.
Lots of short stories read by a voice that made it more enjoyable
The Roy Grace snippets were my favourite but all the stories were good .
Well worth buying.
I love listening to audio books on my commute to work - they take me into another world away from the humdrum of everyday life.
Enjoyed this collection of stories by a great storyteller. Some better than others but all great to listen to.
Yes, it was perfect for a train travel. Short and longer stories with different settings and plots.
The narrator made a great job as there were so many characters and stories in this listen.
Yes, but it also suited a travel time.
I knew Peter James from Roy Grace book series and I really loved listening to these different character stories.
I found it difficult to believe it was written by Peter James, it was more like an old Tales of the Unexpected. Corny, predictable far-fetched rubbish
Ludicrous, obvious plots, peppered with clichéd characters and written in a tabloid journalistic style. Master of the unsubtle. So amateurish and juvenile, particularly the description of women.
I've tried the first couple of short stories, then had to give up on one of them and tempted to do the same on others. This is not the usual Peter James standard, the storylines are amateur and he seems to need to rely on a lot of sexual descriptions, probably because he couldn't think of how else to pad them out.
The narrator does his best with what he was to read.
