A nice collection of horror thrillers

I like starting books knowing as little as possible about them. Sometimes even reading the description is too much because I like to be surprised. This collection of stories was just that - a nice surprise. Some were short, others were quite long, but all were read by the delightful narrator Craig Beck who has a great voice. British accent and creepy in just the right places.

Some stories hinted at more horrific content, but I found all thrilling for certain, and above all, I judge a book's quality by its ability to make me want to hurry back to it quickly. This one certainly did that. I couldn't wait to hit the play button again

I was provided a copy of this book at no charge in exchange for an honest review, and I look forward to other books by this author and narrator. Thomas Flowers is a favorite of mine now.

Dark Thrillers

I enjoyed some of the stories in this collection of short to very short dark thriller/horror. (Fortune Teller, Are you Hungry and Hobbsburg Horror to name 3 of them). Narration was good. Recommend if you like short horror but highly recommend the author’s book Feast. I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review. Thank You!
